Skunk Removal Service

Facts About Skunks

Skunks are amazing adapters to a variety of environments. They are primarily nocturnal when they head out to forage on grubs in the lawn, accessible garbage, and carrion. Their telltale odor can be very prominent during the summer months as they compete for territory and mates. Their eyesight is somewhat poor and tend to follow perimeters as they do their rounds. This can sometimes lead to falling into windowells. They can easily fall in but are poor climbers and can become trapped. Skunks are also a vector animal and have been found to carry rabies. If a skunk is active during the day this does not necessarily mean it is rabid. No one can tell with certainty if an animal is rabid, only capture and submission for testing can determine the possibility.

Signs You Have Skunks

Skunks burrow under decks, porches, sheds, and other structures. An occasional odor likely means one was in the area but has moved on. A constant odor could possibly mean there’s a carcass. Skunks also forage for grubs and have a tendency to dig in lawns leading to small divots periodically throughout the sod.
