How to Get Rid of Skunks?
If you need to get rid of a skunk, we highly recommend leaving it to a professional. Skunks are more dangerous thank you think. Not just for the spray they give off.
Damage Skunks Cause
Skunks can destroy attics, interior walls above garages and the crawl spaces under a home. They can also dig up lawns looking for worms and grubs.
Why skunks can be dangerous
Aside from dealing with the smell of a skunk spray, you could possibly get a nasty bite and scratched by these wild animals. An entomologist at Purdue University warns:
‟Skunks are a primary source of rabies in many areas of the United States. Human and domestic pet contact with skunks should be avoided. If it is necessary to handle a skunk, take all precautions to keep from being bitten or scratched. Several other types of diseases and parasites affect skunks such as distemper, mange, fleas, ticks, lice, roundworms and tapeworms.”
Getting Rid of Skunks
When skunk removal is essential, we recommend hiring a wildlife professional to avoid the risk of being attacked by the animal or contracting a disease. The team at Perry's Wildlife Control can develop a plan for extracting the skunk and keeping them away from your home in the future.
We use special stainless steel (non-rusting) material which prevents the intrusion of Skunks into a sealed area, such as a shed, outdoor building and/or under porches and crawl spaces under a home.
