Locating and removing dead animals for our customers is not the most glamorous of the animal control and wildlife removal services that we provide at American Animal Control ® LLC. However, removal of dead animals can be one of the most rewarding of all our animal removal services, especially for our customers. If you think a dead animal may be in your house you should call right away.
Whether its a dead animal in your wall, a dead animal in the crawlspace, a dead animal in the attic, or dead animal in the chimney, you have obviously become enlightened to the horrible problem that a “dead animal smell” can become. Sometimes even a dead animal or rodent as small as a mouse can just about run you out of your home or office. Many of our customers will call with a “bad smell” or tell us they have a dead animal odor in their house. Our first question is always, have you heard anything that sounds like a animal in your attic, a animal in the wall, a animal in the floor, or an animal the crawlspace? Often times animals will come and go without notice. These animals enter the home in or at the foundation, the attic, or even under decks and sheds. Once an animal is in the house it can pretty much go anywhere it wants. We have removed dead animals from almost every possible place in a home you can think of:
- Dead animals in ceilings
- Dead animals in bedroom closets
- Dead animals in walls,
- Dead animals under bathtubs
Once our wildlife removal specialists removed a decomposed dead carp under a bathtub. The most common dead animal we find in the walls of our customers homes or ceilings of offices is mice. Mice can get in almost anywhere on a home. Once in, mice can move up and down walls, floors, and ceilings. Most people use poisons for mice. Whenever you poison a mouse, or animal of any kind, it becomes very sick and most of the time it will die. The question is, will it be found dead in an attic, dead in the wall, or dead in the basement? When you have a dead animal in your home or office it will emit an odor until it is finished decomposing. When using poisons always remember that you never know where the animal is going to land, and how long its carcass will smell.
Our wildlife removal service technicians remove many dead raccoons per year. Some are found dead in the chimneys, some raccoons are found dead in the crawlspace, and some raccoons are even found dead in attics. When you have a dead raccoon in your house you will have no doubt that it is a dead animal of some kind and not just a sewer leak. Many times the bad smell or bad odor will be accompanied by black flies. Nevertheless, it’s bad, and the dead animal must be removed sooner than later or you can have a unbearable mess on your hands. We have even found maggots pouring out of chimneys of houses and underbellies on mobile homes.
We also remove dead opossums, dead skunks, dead ground hogs, and dead cats underneath homes and in the crawlspaces. Animals will often get sick and look for shelter under decks and sheds for cover. Many times they will end up dead and emit a bad odor as well. Other times the home owners dog will dig the dead animal out from under the deck or shed and roll in it or eat it. This can sometimes lead to the homeowners pet becoming seriously sick.
American Animal Control ® LLC also removes many dead deer in yards. Deer will get hit by cars and wonder out across a yard and die. If you have a dead deer in your yard, and it is within the county or city set backs, which is normally 35 feet from the road, you should call the Department of Natural Resources, or the sheriffs department. Most of the time they can contact the highway department to come and remove it. But if the dead deer in your yard is passed the right of way, you will need to give us a call 877-264-3638 so we can obtain the proper dead deer removal permits and remove the dead deer for you.
You don’t have to live with a bad smell from a dead animal in your home or on your property. A dead animal just laying around decomposing can become a health concern and should always be properly disposed of in a timely and ethical manner.

Warsaw Ind. – A client called recently with noises in the chimney. When our Warsaw technician Robbie arrived and did an inspection of the affected area, it was determined that the entry point was unusual. As you can see in the image below, we had to remove several deck boards because the raccoon was getting into the chimney by a hole near the foundation.
If you see animals coming and going under the deck, it’s best to give AAC a call at 877-264-3638 or at the very least investigate to be sure nothing is getting into the house.
Our Fort Wayne, Indiana technician responded to a call about noises in the attic. During the inspection, an obvious hole in the side of the roof was located. Sometimes it’s not the spot right out in the open. The hole in the side of the house had raccoon hair all over it. He found they were going in and out the hole, and a vent on the roof as well. Barricaded a trap at both locations.
Our animal removal tech caught raccoon coming out of the vent on the roof. The most obvious hole wasn’t the capture point, but the experience of American Animal Control’s Fort Wayne technicians lead to a successful raccoon trapping. Once the raccoon was trapped, the damage is repaired, and no more animals will be able to get into this attic.

Laporte, Ind. – Our customer called us with noises in the attic. We arrived on the scene and did an inspection to find a mother raccoon in the attic and an entrance point on the roofline where raccoons were able to come and go at will. We barricaded a trap over the raccoon entrance point and waited over night. The best case scenario came to fruition! We caught our mother raccoon and all five babies in the trap.
Once the raccoons in the attic were captured, we did animal damage repair for the affected area and any other possible alternate entrances.
Fort Wayne Ind. – Our technicians were called to a raccoons in the chimney call. Whenever the chimney is missing a cap or the cap is damaged, animal entry via the chimney is imminent.
In the photos below, you will notice the scratches and hair at the top of the chimney. Our experienced technicians often diagnose problems like this almost immediately, and promptly get to fixing the problem. After barricading a cage trap over the chimney, the animal removal tech shooed the mother coon out with a chimney brush, straight into the cage. He then removed the babies and installed a new animal-proof chimney cap.
As you can see, this chimney is missing the cap. Raccoons in the chimney are a lot more likely if your cap is missing or damaged on the chimney.
Our wildlife removal experts placed or “barricaded” a trap over the chimney and ran the mother raccoon up and into the trap with a chimney brush. She remained unharmed in the process.
The adolescent raccoons were also removed from this Fort Wayne, Indiana chimney.
The top of the chimney is covered in raccoon hair, and weather related damage because there is no chimney cap. Keep animals out of the chimney by calling AAC to inspect and replace your damaged or missing chimney cap.
You can barely see the adolescent raccoons in the bottom of this chimney liner. American Animal Control, LLC technicians remove hundreds of animals from chimneys every year. Call 877-264-3638 for immediate assistance.
Once all animals are removed, a new chimney cap installed by American Animal Control, LLC will provide years of protection from animal entry and weather damage to your chimney.

Nappanee, Ind. – Our client was having problems with woodpeckers on their wood siding. American Animal Control, LLC does hundreds of animal damage repairs a year.
On this home, we made sure the woodpecker holes got repaired. Then, as a deterrent, flash flags were installed. Nappanee.
We do all types of bird removal and deterrent in our entire service area.
Do you have a groundhog in the basement? American Animal Control will get groundhogs out of basements, crawl spaces, from under decks and sheds all the same way.
Upon arrival, our highly trained technicians do an inspection of the premises, and determine the best course of action for animal removal. If a groundhog is in the basement, like in the case of our client in South Bend, Indiana; we will place or “barricade” a trap over the entrance/exit point the groundhog is using, and block off any other possibilities for exit. With only one way out, simply wait for the groundhog to go into the live cage trap.
Groundhogs in our service area undermine countless foundations and deck footings every year. Consider a permanent solution like our exclusive pest guard barriers. American Animal Control, LLC does shed and deck barriers, which can be installed on about any foundation. Slabs that have groundhogs living under them are not safe, and the animal should be removed before permanent foundation problems occur.
Call 877-264-3638 now if you have a ground hog issue.
Birds getting into vents on buildings is common in the spring when birds are looking for a good nesting spot. People call us when birds getting into vents becomes a problem. Often times a bird will get in, but can’t get out in the same way. They will either die in the vent, causing bad smells in the home, or they will tear a hole into the vent pipes.
Not only do our trained bird removal technicians remove the nuisance, unwanted birds from the vent, but will replace it (if it’s broke or defective) and use a custom-made vent cover to eliminate to possibility of more birds getting in.
Are birds getting into vents on your building? Call now!

Every year our technicians answer the call to remove groundhogs under deck or sheds. It’s important to get rid of groundhogs as soon as possible to avoid costly damages to foundations and footings. Simply removing a groundhog from under the deck is most often what the client thinks they want. The likelihood of another animal getting under the deck is high, and so American Animal Control provides a more permanent solution.
Getting rid of the groundhog under the deck is step #1. Our experienced techs will trap the groundhog, and then propose that a deck barrier be installed to eliminate the possibility of more animals getting under the deck.
If you have animals under the deck, and even if you’ve removed them yourself, call us at 877-264-3638. Our shed and deck barriers are the way to keep animals out from under the deck.

Goshen, Indiana – Spring is officially here, and raccoons are having litters. Warm temperatures allow for raccoons to be very active, and venture from the shelter they sought during the colder months.
Are you hearing noises in the attic? Mother raccoons will dig through the roof into an attic quickly, and have her young there. Call us at 877-264-3638 for raccoon removal in attics. We trap the mother and then remove the whole litter of raccoons.
Tips for keeping raccoons away in Goshen
- Keep all garbage cans secure, as raccoons will use your garbage as a buffet for a quick meal.
- Keep garage doors closed, as raccoons will eat things like dog and cat food, and could use an open garage door to access that food, or to gain an easy entry to the attic for birthing their young.
Fort Wayne, Ind. – For several days, our client heard scratching noises in chimney. It was obvious an animal had gotten inside. When animals get in the chimney, it is important to get them out as soon as possible. Our client knew to call American Animal Control, LLC when they heard noises behind the metal insert.
As you can see behind in the photos below, this metal-lined chimney has a squirrel down inside, but it is unable to get back out. Two different scenarios happen when animals are in chimneys. In this case, a squirrel behind the fireplace insert was unable to get back out. This squirrel would have died in there and the whole house would have smelled like dead squirrel. Dead animals in the chimney are common, and our technicians often remove them, so give us a call at 877-264-3638 for immediate assistance. The second scenario for animals in the chimney are that those animals are using it for shelter to have their young inside. Check out our animals in the chimney page for more information about getting those animals out.
Our technician was able to disassemble the fireplace from the inside enough to get the squirrel out of the chimney. In Fort Wayne, and the surrounding areas, look no further than American Animal Control when you hear animal noises in the chimney.

You may be searching for an experienced raccoon removal company in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This time of year, raccoons are making their way into attics. Once inside, raccoons will have their young, and make a mess of insulation, wiring, and other damages. Your search for an experienced raccoon removal company ends here! American Animal Control, LLC has the knowledge to get the job done right. We have two different raccoon removal jobs from this week to show you below:
#1 – New raccoon setup. Our client, the homeowner thought raccoons were coming down the chimney because they’re hearing the raccoon noises in the chimney. Our experienced raccoon trapping technicians found the entrance point on the roof, low near the gutter. You can see the gutter is nearly overflowing. Our techs removed the debris in the gutter to drain it. Then located the areas the animal was getting on the roof. American Animal Control removes the entrance points for raccoons, and puts a cage over the last, and best entrance point. A cage is “barricaded”, and we’ll see what tomorrow brings. Fort Wayne has hundreds of raccoons that love to use rotten roof edges to dig a hole in the roof and make a new home in your attic.
#2 New raccoon setup. Our client is hearing scratching in ceiling. The homeowner tried to repair power fan vent with a garbage can lid. Our experienced raccoon removal technician in Fort Wayne installed a temporary cover to barricade the cage, giving any raccoons inside only one option to get out; through the cage.

Dead mouse recovery Union Pier, Michigan. This customer had struggled for a week trying to find the source of the bad smell. It turned out to be inside the door jam behind the trim board. Very happy customer to get this removed.
How to get rid of dead animals in the house
When we get calls for dead animals inside the house, it can be due to a range of possible causes. When the customer doesn’t know where the animal is, it has likely died in the wall. We don’t use poisons for our animal removal service for this very reason. You never know where an animal will die if it’s been poisoned. We always trap and exclude animals as opposed to poisoning them.
Sometimes animals die of natural causes inside walls, attics, and crawl spaces. Our experienced technicians can often times remove baseboards to be as minimally invasive to the walls as possible when locating a dead animal in the wall. When animals die in the crawlspace of a building, our technicians have no problem getting in, and removing any dead animal. Once the source of the smell is gone, the stench of the dead critter will dissipate fairly quickly.
In summer months, we may find an animal has died in the attic of a building. The heat can make this a very smelly job quickly. Call on our experienced technicians to get rid of the dead animal and clean up the mess.
If you have a dead animal in your yard or under the deck, we remove those too! Call American Animal Removal for all of your dead animal removal needs. (877) 264-3638 We do the job so you don’t have to!

A lot of the time when customers are calling our toll free animal removal service hotline at 877-264-3638, they know for sure they have an animal problem. It doesn’t matter to us if you have Squirrels, Muskrats, or Mink. We are here to remove nuisance wild animals of every shape and size.

Are your gutters so full of debris that you have trees and weeds growing out of them? If gutters sit full of debris for long, they will cause the roof edge to fail.
One of American Animal Control’s most effective solutions for keeping the roof edge in good shape is regular gutter cleaning. We were on location in Fort Wayne, Indiana recently cleaning gutters.
When roof edges, soffits, & fascia are compromised by damaging effects from unmaintained gutters, it is easy for squirrels, raccoons, and other animals to gain entry into the attic and walls. This is largely preventable.
