When animals die in or around a structure, The fleas and ticks from the animal will try to find a new host.
Its common for people and pets to experience fleas when a animal has died.
The dead animal will also attract fly's and lots of them. The fly's will lay their eggs on the dead animal,
In a matter of 4 days to 2 weeks the fly eggs will hatch into maggots.
The maggots will feed on the dead animal , then the metamorphoses will turn the maggot into a fly.
And the process recycles until the dead animal is removed or it totally rotted.
