Skunks belong to the weasel family. They are nocturnal in nature and will usually be sighted in your gardens or lawns during late night hours. These mammals have started to invade urban dwellings as there is an abundance of food and water sources available. Skunks feed on smaller animals that mainly fall in the pest category. This characteristic may make them a favourite among some homeowners, while many others may not share the same opinion. This is due to the fact, that in their search for prey, they destroy gardens and lawns by uprooting plants and damaging other vegetation. They even create burrows and this makes your gardens look messy and untidy.

You might not know this, but skunks are more beneficial in your yard than you might have realized. This is because they feed on harmful pests that destroy garden crops. However, many property owners would rather get rid of skunks due to their notorious odour and their destructive digging habits. Skunk removal is not something you want to do on your own; this process is best left to the professionals.

The first stage is performing an inspection service of your property, this is to determine if indeed you have skunks in your home.  The inspection service will also help determine the extent of damage the skunks have caused in your property, their population, and where they are currently residing in your property.

Once our professionals are satisfied that there are indeed skunks in your property, they will pick a removal method based on the inspection report. Depending on the type of damage the skunks have caused, and their population, our specialists, might decide to adopt a mix of methods to get rid of the animal pest effectively. It’s important to note the more methods used to get rid of the skunks the higher the success rate of finding a long-term solution to kicking them out.

Live traps are perfect solutions to getting rid of skunks. Since these critters are known to spray an awful smelling liquid when they feel threatened, it may not be a good idea to use a method that gets you too close to the animal. Live traps are perfect for stubborn animals.

Depending on the inspection report, our technicians might also decide to use one-way exclusion doors to get rid of the skunks. This solution ensures the skunk doesn’t get access back into your property once it gets out.

After removal, we offer exclusion and repair services. The inspection report will have all the information on how the skunks got into your property. This information will be used to seal off all possible entry points preventing re-entry. We will also advise you on the best practices to avoid skunk invasion in the future.

Skunk Problems

Skunks are small sized mammals that forage for food and water during the night time. They are known to survive on plants and smaller animals and insects. They mainly eat rats, mice, moles and other rodents and even feast on insects such as grasshoppers, crickets and insect larvae. Skunks are also famous for their digging behaviour. In the act, they uproot plants and vegetation and cause extensive damages in your garden. Skunks choose to live in crawlspaces that are mainly found under your porch or deck. They chew through the foundation and make their burrows in such low lying places.

Potential Health Perils

Skunks mainly breed and have offsprings during the winter season. Each litter consists of approximately 6 little ones. However, not all of its young can survive the harsh cold of the winter season. On average, approximately 2 or 3 make it till the end. The young ones are fast learners and even though they may follow their mother around for about a year, they are soon left to fend for themselves. Skunks are carriers of various bacteria that could affect humans if they come in close contact with one. They also carry fleas and ticks that transfer on to pets and other domestic animals on your property. Some skunks are rabid and their bites or scratches could be dangerous.

“My husband and I have this lovely cat which we love to play with. A few weeks ago, it came in smelling so badly, like a rotten egg. We tried to clean it with all we could use, but the odour persisted. We googled the problem to search for a solution; that’s when we realized that a skunk might be living around. We called Wildlife Removal Guelph, and they were able to find and remove the skunk and, most importantly, cleaned our dear pet. So happy the odour is gone.”
