Animal Oders  &  Dead Animal Removal


Animal Odors
Dead animals or pests under your house, in your wall space, or in the attic are the main sources of pest-related odors in a building. Though possibly masked by other smells in your house such as your cat's litter box, a dead-animal smell is usually unmistakable. Another unmistakable smell is Bat guano. If you are uncertain, go stand under the Congress street bridge one night to smell (and watch) Austin's famous bats. If you don't want to know what it is and/or simply want to "get rid of that smell", please Contact Us

Dead Animal Removal
We handle the finding and removal of dead pests, animals, and pets. We always perform the least invasive searches of your walls, attics, and substructure first. In cases where a dead animal is trapped in a wall, we may have to make incisions in the wall. We have seen everything from mice to raccoons to cats inside wall spaces. We have special tools for many jobs but each search is different. A hint for locating the source of a dead-animal smell in your house yourself might be to turn off your AC and temporarily remove any odor-eating devices from the areas that smell. Again, if you are uncertain about what to do and you have questions, please Contact Us

Please note:
This is NOT free.
No, the city does NOT have an agency that will pick up dead animals.
It is also illegal to dump dead animals wherever you like.
A single truck visit to DFI costs $75. We will not wait around until we fill up a truck with dead animals before we dispose of them. Therefore, a single deer may cost $75 just for us to get rid of it. Retrieving your dead animal also costs us time, energy, gas, and usually a good shower.
