Alive wildlife in the house is a nuisance even a dead wildlife in the house causes different problems such as bad odor in or outside one’s house. Due to the dead body there are a lot a flies or swarms present near the areas which again pose threat to health issues. Furthermore there are stains on the walls. Because of these reasons people want that a dead animal should be removed from their house as soon as possible and the areas should be deodorized and decontaminated.

The main problem due to a dead animal is that its body starts deteriorating which results in odor. Initially the odor of organic compound and light and annoying but with the passage of time it increases. How strong the odor can get also depends on different factors such as size of the animal. A larger animal will have a stronger smell as compared to a smaller one; the type of wildlife also determines the strength of smell as every animal has its own smell. Location of the body also plays a vital role as if it is not near the ventilation unit in the house it might be a big problem but if it is in the attic near a ventilation area one might not detect a strong odor. Temperature also has a part in the process of decomposition because if the temperature is high the decomposition will take place at a faster pace and would have a strong odor. Same is the case with humidity. Air flow also affects the odor as some people might complain that they sense the odor more in the morning as compared to the evening due to the air flow. People differ from each other on their personality basis so some are unable to even tolerate a little bit of smell in the house.
