Skunk Behavior In Nashville, TN

Most people try to avoid any up-close encounters with skunks. They have a distinct look, as well as a recognizable vile odor that is not soon forgotten! Unfortunately, skunks have been well adapted to the urban life. So, if you need assistance, don’t hesitate to hire our skunk removal services in Nashville.

Skunks generally eat anything – from plants to berries and bugs, to rodents, reptiles, pet food and trash. Pretty much anything edible in your yard serves as a great food source for them. Skunks also love to invade gardens and chicken yards. Often skunks will dig dens right next to your home or commercial building on your property, which makes them a nuisance that you definitely will want removed.

Skunks are difficult to trap as they are very smart and alert creatures who are shy and spray anything that makes them feel threatened. As our professional skunk trappers begin their skunk relocating efforts, always check to see if they have babies in the area. People describe baby skunk noises as having a shrieking sound.

Pungent skunk odor is a reason to call a professional for skunk removal on your property. Alpha Wildlife offers skunk removal, skunk control, skunk removal from yards, getting rid of skunks under decks or porches, crawlspaces, and any other places that skunks invade and make their home. Unfortunately, at this time, there are no effective or registered skunk repellents on the market.

Alpha Wildlife offers dead skunk removal services and deodorization. Leaving a dead skunk in your yard will probably make the problem worse as it will attract other animals, insects, and parasites.

Skunks Carry Diseases – skunk removal in Nashville, TN

Besides their foul odor, you want skunks away from your home or property because they come with diseases.  Learn more about diseases skunks can carry. 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. Alpha Wildlife’s professionally trained skunk removers have the knowledge, experience and equipment to get rid of skunk odor quickly.

Tips to Prevent a Skunk Invasion

If you’re wondering how to prevent a skunk infestation, you’re not alone. This skunk-loving creature lives in forests, cities, and suburbs. Luckily, you can reduce its activity by removing the things they like to eat. While you can’t eliminate them completely, you can get rid of their favorite food, including acorns.

First of all, you should try to prevent a skunk infestation by not allowing skunks to enter your property. If you have a garden, you should avoid planting fruit and vegetables near your garage.

Also, you should pick up fallen fruit and seeds. If you’ve already planted a garden, you can build a fence around it. Make sure it’s high enough so that the skunks can’t dig underneath. Lastly, you can try using an electronic or solar animal repellent system.

These systems will emit an unpleasant sound to skunks and will help them escape.

The first thing you can do is avoid feeding them.

If you can’t stop them from coming inside, you can try to use some natural methods. You can make use of the urine of dogs and foxes. If these methods don’t work, try mixing the two. If you can’t afford a professional to do this, you can always try to do it yourself.

Don’t ignore the smell. A simple solution to get rid of the skunk’s stench is to spray some vinegar around the yard. This solution will absorb skunk scent and can be used to dislodge skunks from your property. It is also effective for getting rid of skunks from chicken coops.

Another great way to prevent a skunk invasion is to block access to the area where the skunks are likely to live. The smell can be hard to locate in some areas, but the key is blocking them from entering. Using heavy-gauge screening and trenches to block access is an effective solution for this. Even if the skunks don’t hibernate, it’s best to prevent them from invading the house.

The best way to prevent a skunk invasion is to limit their habitats.

To prevent skunks from living in your house, you can place citrus peels around the perimeter of your property. This way, they have to deal with the smell of the citrus fruit before they’re able to enter the house. Moreover, they need to be frightened of the ammonia that these devices release.

We were really impressed with Chris Mclain’s knowledge of pest control. He was so professional in his explanation of what we needed to have done. His bid was also much lower than our other bid. We highly recommend this company for any pest elimination you need. Michael and Ashley Robilio.

After calling multiple other companies to remove a possibility rabid racoon from my property and was told they could not get to me until the next day, I called Alpha Wildlife. Chris came out within 30 minutes of my call and caught and removed racoon. He said they would check to make sure it was sick. If so they would euthanize humanely. If it was not sick they would release it back into the wild. This made my daughter very happy. I would highly recommend.

REMOVAL PROCESS

Happy Clients

TRAPPING

The first step in the wildlife process is removing the problem animal. Once the animal is identified, Alpha Wildlife will take the specific approach required. This means we use one of our many different types of traps to remove the animal from the home or business.
With live traps, it is mandatory that we check the traps every day that they are opened. Based on the entry point, we position our traps that will be most effective in catching the animal.

PREVENTION

While we are trapping the problem animal, Alpha Wildlife will begin on the prevention and repairs. Every repair that Alpha Wildlife does is first and foremost, to be effective and aesthetically pleasing. The goal here is twofold.
On one hand, we want to make sure that the animals stay out of your home. Our second objective is to make sure your home looks great when we are done. The repairs that we do on your home will be based on the animals that we are preventing reentry from. For example, a bat seal-up is much different than a rat seal-up.
Additionally, we will complete an inspection to look for other signs of problematic animals. Sometimes there are indicators that other critters have been through. We want the process to be thorough so it doesn’t happen again.

REPAIR

Sometimes wildlife in the attic or crawlspace causes so much damage that the insulation or vapor barrier needs to be replaced. In this case, an Alpha Wildlife technician will take detailed pictures of the damage and provide them to the homeowner.
Sometimes a homeowner would like to use their insurance to cover the cost of the restoration. If this is the case, they can provide the estimate and pictures to their insurance representative. Alpha Wildlife works with any insurance company to take care of their customers.
Once the work is agreed upon, Alpha Wildlife will schedule an insulation or vapor barrier replacement. This process usually takes a day or two.
