Trying to get rid of skunks yourself can prove to be a frustrating, time-consuming, and costly challenge. That’s because these little striped creatures are tenacious and relentless in their pursuit to get into your home to either have their babies or simply search for open pet food or a warm and private space. Skunks can get into anything and live under a foundation, shed, patio, or deck.

Skunks are nocturnal animals that typically avoid human interaction. However, they may sometimes wander into residential areas in search of food or shelter, especially during mating season. While skunks are known for their distinctive smell, they are also carriers of various diseases, including rabies. Rabies is a serious viral infection that affects the nervous system and can be fatal if left untreated. If a skunk is exhibiting unusual behavior such as aggression or disorientation, it may be infected with rabies.

Professional skunk removal services can help to safely and effectively remove skunks from your property while minimizing the risk of rabies transmission. We are trained in handling skunks and have the appropriate equipment and protective gear to ensure the safety of both ourselves and the skunk. Additionally, we can help to identify and seal off potential entry points to prevent skunks from returning in the future.

It’s important to keep in mind that attempting to handle a skunk on your own can be dangerous, especially if the skunk is infected with rabies. Rabies can be transmitted through the saliva of an infected animal, even if the animal doesn’t exhibit any symptoms. Therefore, it’s essential to take precautions and seek professional help if you suspect that a skunk on your property may be infected with rabies.

While skunks are generally not aggressive, it’s still important to exercise caution and seek professional skunk removal services if necessary to ensure the safety of you, your family, and your pets. Remember to never attempt to handle a skunk on your own and to always seek help from trained professionals if you suspect that a skunk on your property may be infected with rabies.

Our Skunk Removal Process


First and foremost, the entry point has to be identified so we can determine the best course of action to take. Skunks can be found under decks, sheds, or porches. They have incredible digging abilities over climbing abilities, so you don't have to worry too much about them getting into your attic or chimney. If we find excavated areas or abandoned holes that might serve as a skunk den, we will fill in them with loose dirt and keep an eye on what happens over the next few days. If the hole is reopened and the dirt is gone, it is very likely that you have a skunk. In addition to identifying problem areas, our experienced wildlife removal technicians will also point out areas that are likely to be inhabited by skunks so you can make an informed decision to prevent future issues.


Now it's time to remove the skunk from your property. We'll prod the mama skunk away and yes, we'll humanely handle any babies that are in the den so we can relocate mama and babies together. If you suspect a skunk has gone under your deck, porch, etc., and a trapped skunk has not come out and you notice a foul odour, our team can also conduct dead wildlife removal services. Ultimately, we will solve all your skunk removal inquiries and meet all your wildlife needs.

Clearing and Cleaning​

Regardless of the animal you've had trouble with in and around your property, our pest control experts will thoroughly clean up after their removal so no traces of food from their den/nest left by the mother skunk is left behind, so you can rest assured knowing no health risks will endanger you or your family. Sanitizing and removing skunk odors from skunk's spray is very important when it comes to animal and pest control and dealing with skunk damage.

Skunk Prevention​

As we mentioned before, skunks are known for being relentless. Open pet food or bird feeders can attract skunks. Therefore, sometimes after they're removed and relocated from your home, they may still return. That being said, it's imperative to take measures that will prevent a future striped skunk intrusion. After removal, our team will seal any entry points and bury heavy-gauge security screens to protect potential openings. Additionally, we will also deter other skunks from entering your property by deodorizing the yard and surrounding areas and ensuring your home is thoroughly protected from other animals with the necessary measures, such as removal of brush piles.

Leave Skunk Control and Removal of Wild Animals To An Expert
