Skunk Removal Services
Skunks have a familiar black and white body, and just seeing one scares most people to back away from them quickly! Skunks are seen all year in Nashville, but most often from January through April, when they are trying to build a den to have safe and secure place to give birth. A slang term for skunks is ‘pole cats’. Skunks are a member of the weasel family and are slow-moving mammals with strong front legs with ample claws that allow them to dig holes in yards.
Most skunks are about the same size as a house cat and are usually shy in nature. They are usually not confrontational. It’s their pungent odor that gets everyone’s attention! This smell secretes from the skunks’ anal glands. Most of the time you smell a skunk nearby much quicker than you see one.
Alpha Wildlife’s professionally trained skunk removers have the knowledge, experience and equipment to get rid of skunk odor quickly.

Skunks Carry Diseases
Skunks carry diseases and parasites, including rabies, distemper and mange. Any of these diseases can be transmitted to humans as well as your pets. Get all pets vaccinated against these harmful and fatal diseases as soon as possible.
Important: Skunk removal is a specialty service that requires special permitting and insurance.
Before relocating a skunk, always check to see if they have babies in the area. Baby skunks are called ‘kits’ and a group of skunks is called a ‘surfeit’ (impress someone with this during trivia night!). Learn more about skunk behavior and the diseases skunks carry.
Skunk In Duct Line or HVAC Line?
Skunks love to tear duct lines and use the insulation in their dens. Knowing their behavior and habits help with safe removal. Once a skunk has moved under your home, quick action is required to minimize their damage. The skunk can spray or die inside your duct line! No doubt this would be quite unpleasant!
