Q:There's a bad smell under my house; I think something died under there. Can you get it?

Answer:The Animal Services Officers are not equipped or permitted to crawl under structures to investigate smells or possible animals living under them. You may try contacting a contractor or exterminator to evaluate the situation. There are also several animal removal services available; look in the Yellow Pages under Animal Rescue & Removal Services. You should also pest-proof your home as soon as the problem is located and removed so that it doesn't happen again. Once animals know of a "safe" place to hide or nest, they will return to it.Return to Questions
