While skunks may not appear harmful at a glance, they can still cause plenty of chaos. You already know that they have a terrible smelling spray, but did you know that its smell could last for a few weeks? Their spray could also blind you if it gets on your face, and just being near it is enough to cause headaches.
Skunks have a nasty habit of raising their young under your porch, but we’ve got you covered. We’ll start by sealing off the little entries they use to get under your porch, save one. Then we’ll place a trap in front of the last entry. With nowhere else to go, these stinky pests will be funneled into our trap; right where we want them. After that, all that’s left is to remove any baby skunks from the nest, seal up the last entry, and remove the skunks from your home.
Things get a lot simpler when the skunk isn’t hiding under a porch. We’ll start by seeing where the skunk lives and gets its food. Then we’ll set a trap somewhere along its path, bait it with something it likes, and camouflage it as best as we can. Finally, we’ll wait for the skunk to fall into our trap before taking it away from your house.
You may have heard about different skunk repelling techniques like mothballs, ammonia, or sonic devices, but our experience shows that these methods are nothing but a waste of time. There’s nothing that’ll work as well as a good old trap.
We don’t consider our job done until we prevent other skunks from getting into your home. We’re always happy to give you some advice on how you can change things to keep the animals at bay, like securing the lid of your garbage bin and keeping your pet food indoors at all times. We’ll also go around your home, sealing any pathways we think the skunks could use to get inside your home. We also recommend you install a fence to keep these pests out of your home because they aren’t very good at climbing.
If you spot a skunk in your home and want it gone, make sure to call or contact us. We’re more than happy to help remove the animal quickly, responsibly, and legally. Our service areas include Waco, Temple, and Killeen, so don’t hesitate to give us a call!
