Skunks are nocturnal creatures, so they could be on your property and you might not even know it. They like to dig holes and burrow under things to create their dens, and home foundations, crawl spaces, porches and sheds are an invitation for them to burrow under and cause damage. You may notice small, cone shaped holes dug into your lawn, skunks look for grubs and worms in the soil. They also love to get into your garden for vegetables and fruits. Be cautious of skunks as they are the primary carriers of rabies and they can spray up to 10 feet away, multiple times! If a skunk has taken up residence on your property, it is best to let one of our technicians safely remove them. Once they are gone we will complete the exclusion work to seal their holes and prevent them from coming back.
