Skunks are generally non-aggressive, but that doesn’t make them welcome house-guests. They often cause property damage by burrowing underneath homes or making dens beneath decks and porches. Not to mention the nasty odor of their spray, which can cause skin and eye irritation.
Need a skunk removed from under your home, deck, or porch? Call (219) 707-1968 to learn more about skunk removal, trapping, control, and repair of any damage caused by skunks.
Our Skunk Removal Process
To trap and remove skunks, we make use of one and two-door baited live-traps. Skunks are omnivorous and will be attracted by simple bait, like peanut butter. However, if there are small domesticated dogs or cats in the area that could accidentally be trapped, we will often use dried or fresh fruit to attract the skunk.
For skunks, we may also cover the traps with dark cloth or felt to keep the nocturnal animal calm while it is trapped and removed from your property. This helps reduce the risk of the skunk releasing its spray while trapped.
Skunk-Proofing Your Property
If a skunk has burrowed underneath your home, deck, or porch, we will often use a one-way swinging gate to ensure that the skunk cannot reenter your home once it has left to find food. Once we have confirmed that the skunk has been removed from your home, we will seal the burrow entrance to animal-proof your property.
Humane Skunk Removal
Skunks can also be a bit…clumsy. We often find them in basement window wells, unable to climb out. If you have a skunk trapped on your property, and you don’t want to risk getting sprayed, call (219) 707-1968. We’ll quickly and humanely remove the skunk from your property.
