Some animals may attempt to live in crawl spaces, or under decks and porches. If that animal dies inside a structure, this can lead to damage and health concerns, such as:
- Odor: Dead animals can cause a strong and unpleasant odor, which can be unpleasant for people and may attract other animals.
- Disease: Dead animals can harbor diseases that can be transmitted to other animals or humans. Removing the dead animal helps prevent the spread of disease.
- Pest infestations: Dead animals can attract pests such as flies, maggots, and other insects. These pests can spread disease and may be a nuisance to people.
- Decomposition: Dead animals can decompose and release gases that can be harmful to the environment or human health. Removing the animal helps prevent this.
