Holes in the yard, beneath your shed or balcony could be a number of things. Same goes for damaged crops, gardens or ripped open trash bags. But the one telltale sign that no-one can mistake is the awful smell left by a skunk.
You might think them cute and charming with their furry tails and adorable waddle. Unfortunately, skunks are as clever and opportunistic as they are messy. They know a good deal when they see one and will keep coming back unless measures are taken.
Our AAAC Wildlife Removal pros are here to help you evict your skunks, clean up the mess, and repair the damage. Skunk control and removal should be initiated as soon as the animal has been discovered living in the area. Call now for a quote!
Skunk Families in your Yard
Skunks commonly use a front or rear porch and patio to rear their young. May is a prime time for the young to be born and sounds described as shrieking may be heard. Removal of baby skunks from a porch or patio is a very unique process that should be professionally resolved to prevent the skunks from entering the home and endangering the occupants.
Skunks will only spray to protect their young, and they will often give warning signs telling you to back away. These warning signs include lowering their heads, lifting their tails, arching their backs and stamping their feet.
Skunks can also carry rabies, distemper and mange. These diseases can be transmitted to humans and to your pets. Make sure your pets have been vaccinated against these harmful and fatal diseases.
Skunk Trapping and Removal
Since both the health of the young skunks and the anxious state of the mother skunk must be kept in mind, a den of young skunks must be approached with particular caution. If you discover a skunk on your property, contact an animal control specialist. In many cases, trapping and removing a skunk is the necessary solution.
At AAAC Wildlife Removal, we can guarantee that our professionals will not only thoroughly resolve the problems generated by skunk occupation, but they will do so in the most humane way possible.
Deodorization and Cleanup
You may or may not smell the skunks living under your home. If the skunk has sprayed recently, the odor will follow. We offer deodorization services for skunk odor removal.
