Skunks are well-known for their odor. When threatened, or even during mating season or other seemingly random times, they can discharge a fluid from ducts near the anus, and spray up to 15 feet. When we show up for a skunk removal there are 3 main concerns we have:
When threatened, or even during mating season or other seemingly random times, they can discharge a fluid from ducts near the anus, and spray up to 15 feet. This fluid can burn the eyes of any threat, and of course the odor is unpleasant to nearly all animals – humans included! It’s easy to recognize skunks, as nature has endowed them will distinctive black and white fur, which warns “stay back!”. Like many other mammals, skunks are animals that can be prone to disease, and in many situations these conditions can be passed between skunks, or transmitted to people or other animals. Because skunks are a natural pest, it is important to treat them with respect and not allow yourself to get too close, even if you are trying to help, as it is easy to catch a harmful disease from the animals. However, if skunks are causing a problem for you, by taking the right precautions it is possible to deal with them safely without putting yourself or your family and pets at risk.
When it comes to skunks you do not want to have them at your home let alone have them spray you. These animals most of the time are very frightened and will not know your intention with them. We have dealt with them for years so we understand their behavior and psychology. With that we are able to remove the animal without any incident and with the safety of the animal in mind.
These animals, most of the time are trying to find a home or have made a home from you property when you weren't aware of them. As with any home they will protect it and attack if they feel threatened. We have dealt with them for years so we understand their behavior and psychology. With that we are able to remove the animal without any incident and with the safety of the animal in mind.
Ideally you would want to do nothing, just leave them alone and everything would go back to normal. Sadly that is not the case, skunks once they find a place they want to call home they will nest there are depending on the time of the year expand their family. It's better to find them a new home before that happens.
The last part is something that not many people enjoy and its cleaning up after an unwanted guest. Some of these animals may leave feces, food, bedding and many other things behind. These can lead to possible diseases and bacteria being formed which can cause issue for you and those around you. We get in there, get it cleaned and leave your space good as new in you choose for us to do it. We don't force any services!!!
Because there are dangerous conditions such as leptospirosis that can be transmitted through skunk feces, you should always take the appropriate precautions before entering a confined area where skunks have been, or disturbing a skunk’s nest. Because the animals do create a significant amount of droppings, and some diseases can become airborne, it is important to wear a pair of goggles and breathing apparatus, to filter out any harmful spores. It is also important to dispose of the feces appropriately, as even if it is buried dogs and other animals can dig it up. Ensure that the feces is placed in a sealed container or garbage bag, and that it is either put out with the garbage or incinerated.
