Sandy Springs wildlife control tip of the month:
Does a Dead Animal’s Carcass cause Flies?
The answer to this question is very simple; Yes. Almost all animal corpses cause flies after some days of the animals being dead. Usually, the flies start flocking after 5-7 days. However, there are some important factors that determine how fast the Sandy Springs animal trapping flies flock in.
In a hotter environment, rotting and decomposition seem to happen very quickly. This means that the flies may start flocking in after three days since by then, decomposition has already started and the corpse is producing a rather strong stench.
Presence of ice
Ice is one of the best natural corpse preservatives. Corpses covered in ice may be preserved for years without any decomposition or rotting taking place. In fact, there have been cases of corpses being found in ice months after death and yet they still seem like they have been dead for a day or two. Corpses buried in ice rarely attract flies.
Wounded animals tend to attract flies faster than animals that did not have any wounds before death. Open Sandy Springs animal control wounds tend to attract flies very quickly even before the animal dies. When the animal dies, the number of flies increases very rapidlyin the first few hours.
Most animal poisons start by causing internal hemorrhaging and bleeding. Blood attracts flies very fast. Animals that have died of poisoning tend to be smelly a few hours after Sandy Springs pest control death. This means that flies are attracted to the smelling corpse even before a Sandy Springs exterminator day has passed. Poisoned animals attract flies in large numbers especially if the bleeding happened to be in a body opening like the nose or the ears.
Death by old age
Animals that die of old age do not attract flies that fast. The flies take longer to flock on the corpse when the animals did not have any diseases or were not injured. However, the frail flesh of the old animals starts to decompose after a few days and this starts to attract flies.
The presence of flies
The time it takes for flies to flock on a body is also determined by far away the flies were. When an animal dies near another decomposing or rotting Sandy Springs wildlife removal corpse, or near a smelly garbage pit, the flies take a shorter time to reach the body. However, if the corpse starts smelling and the flies are miles away, then it may take a while before the body is covered in flies.
