Skunks

Skunk removal experts

Skunks are primarily nocturnal (active at night). They generally mate in late winter and have a litter ranging from 3-6 with a gestation period of 2-3 months. The offspring will stay with the mother for a year before moving on to establish their own family. Skunks are omnivores eating both plant and animal matter, but really seem to prefer insects. They very frequently inhabit human structures and will live under sheds, porches, decks, and in crawl spaces. One of the largest concerns with skunks is their odor. They may discharge or scent mark the areas they inhabit, creating an unpleasant odor. Many people don’t like skunks on their property, because of fear of stumbling across one and getting sprayed. There’s also the problem of pets confronting a skunk and getting sprayed. In addition, they can also do a lot of digging, and burrowing causing damage to lawns. Skunks need to trapped and removed and any entry points excluded to prevent future entry.
