Many of Maryland's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Maryland's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Baltimore county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Catonsville animal control for wildlife issues.

Catonsville Wildlife Removal Tip: How to find and remove a dead opossum

Have you tried dealing with a dead opossum yourself? If not yet, there are a lot of things that you need to keep in mind with regard on this matter.

Identify the Carcass and the Location

When you smell something odd, it means to say that there is a dead opossum. It will already guide you where exactly is the location of its carcass. Better to identify where you could find the smell of its carcass. Afterwards, try to examine the crannies and the nooks. Find the area where it has died.

Bag the Dead Animal

Even if the opossum is already dead, still, the ticks and fleas are not yet dead. While you're still wearing gloves and clothing, move its carcass into a garbage bag. When you already have completed this, you may now tie the garbage bag closed. Double bag the carcass. Make it sure that it is completely sealed.

If you still wait for more time for its carcass to be completely removed, you need to place it inside a sealed box. This way, you avoid the scent from attracting animals.

Disposal of its Carcass

When it is placed inside a bag, its carcass can be placed with the garbage. If possible, you can just burn it. However, it is not suggested to bury its carcass. There are wild animals around that may detect its smell. They might open the bag that could bring more issues.
