Many of Texas'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 Texas'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 Hays 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 Buda animal control for wildlife issues.

Unfortunately, animals die every day, in a variety of ways. Even more unfortunately, if you live near a patch of thick trees, woods, ponds, or even if it has just been a particularly warm summer, you might have to be closer to dead animals than you are comfortable with.

You might be wondering what signs you would encounter when having a dead animal inside your home. There are many signs, many of which are fairly self-explanatory, such as: a particularly strong odor inside your home; swarms of flies; animal carcass or odor in your yard; and stains on either the ceilings or walls of your home. If you are having multiple of these problems in your home, you should be aware that you probably have a dead animal somewhere inside your home. So, what are you supposed to do about it now?

First, you should always try to narrow down where the source of the smell is coming from to just one room. This might be tricky, since the smell will often be strongest in areas that have no air flow, even if these are not necessarily the closest to the carcass. If you have an elevated house, you should crawl underneath it, making sure that an animal did not get trapped down there. If you think that an animal died in the walls, you should sniff the walls with your nose directly against it, until you hit a powerful smell. You can then rent or buy a drywall saw to get into the wall, opening it up, and being able to take the animal out.

Once you locate the carcass, you should always take precautions when removing it, for a variety of hygienic reasons. The absolute bare minimum of these precautions should be wearing rubber gloves when taking care of the animalís body. However, many people will also want to wear a facial mask to cover their mouth, especially if the carcass is being moved. It is also recommended to keep rubbing alcohol close at hand, just in case any blood or bodily fluid from the carcass gets onto your skin. If you are moving or handling the dead animal, you should wash the clothes that you were wearing immediately. Most dead animals will carry parasites, that will often latch onto whatever is closest after their original host dies.

When disposing of the animal, you should first check state and local regulations about the proper burial or disposal. Some states will insist that the animal be taken care of at a state facility; however, if there is no regulation, there are still many procedures that you should follow to make sure that the animal is disposed of in the best way. Most small animals can be double-bagged in thick plastic, then placed in the garbage. Large animals, though, may be difficult to deal with yourself, so you should at least move it away from the road until a state official can collect the carcass.
