Reasons for Concern: The primary concern with dead animals, is of course, the odor. When an animal dies in  the attic, wall, or under the house,  it will naturally start to decay. When this happens, it gives off a foul smell which will be slight at first, then grow with intensity over time. The intensity of the smell differs by many factors: Animal Type and Size, location, and Time & Temperature.

Animal Type and Size: All animals have Different rates of decomposition. The odors associated with them vary also.  A larger animal means more decaying flesh, which means a stronger odor. For example; A dead skunk or raccoon will take longer to decompose and have a stronger odor than a dead mouse. 

Location of Carcass: This plays a big part in the way our olfactory senses (noses) pick up the odors. Say for instance, the animal dies under the house next to a foundation vent, you will have more odor seeping to the outside of the house than you have entering it. If it dies in an area with poor ventilation, it will come up through floor boards, through the walls etc. If it happens to die in the attic, the insulation may reduce the odor trailing in through the ceiling. However, if no insulation is present, the smell can spread throughout the whole house. 

Time and Temperature: How long the animal has been dead and the temperature in its surrounding area will attribute to how foul and how fast the decomposition will occur. The hotter the surrounding temperature, the faster the state of decomposition. The cooler, the slower. At first the odor will appear weak, then depending on its time and temperature and location it will increase. There are three periods of decay.                   

Stage One: The animal dies and gives off a slight odor.  

Stage Two: The gasses form with in the carcass, expanding the body cavity. During this time of expansion, it seems like the smell has finally gone away. But don't celebrate yet!                 

Stage Three: The body bursts from all the built up gasses, causing an even larger stench. This has to be the worst stage. Its at this stage that flies are attracted. From here mother nature and all her insects take over. The odor life cycle varies, depending on the size of the animal.

Why do I smell it stronger in the morning? It maybe that the air is flowing from a different direction during that part of the day. If the animal died in the attic, its possible that cooler evening temperatures have caused cooled the attic just enough to make the odor molecules sink down to the house level.

Why do I smell it stronger at night? It maybe that the air flow has changed from morning to evening. As did the temperature. The animal may have died in the crawlspace under the house. As the temperature rises and so does the air containing the odor molecules of the deceased animal. And Thus carrying the into the house.

Regardless of the how strong the stench is, most people cannot tolerate it. And the removal process must be done!
