Skunk Removal and Control Services

Eliminating skunks from your home is a key priority as soon as you discover or suspect an infestation. These are animals which have a reputation for their unpleasant odor, and which also have the capacity to cause significant structural damage to your property, as well as issues with ventilation and heating systems.

We can help you take care of the problem, and offer a comprehensive, multi-step solution which ensures that you remain totally skunk free for the foreseeable future.

Identifying Skunks

Skunks are a common pest and can cause a lot of damage despite being fairly small – around 24-40 inches long. They can be easily distinguished from other small mammals thanks to a long white stripe against a black coat, as well as their bushy tails which are most commonly associated with spraying.

This act of scent marking is one of the biggest issues with skunks, and the resulting smell can permeate the whole house, causing misery for inhabitants.

Problems With Skunks

As well as a terrible smell, skunks can also cause structural damage to your home. They naturally dig, and this can result in instabilities in foundations and porches if they have chosen to nest in these areas, as well as causing damage to your lawns and gardens.

If they choose to mark their scent in an enclosed area, the smell can travel to the entire property and be very hard to eliminate. This is amplified if the animal marks on concrete – this is a porous material and so will hold the smell for longer.

Skunks can also be dangerous; they are very common carriers of diseases such as parvo, rabies, and distemper. These can be risky for humans and can prove fatal for animals such as dogs. It is important that any skunk problem is dealt with as soon as possible to ensure the safety of your household – both two and four-legged!
