Skunks Can 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. It’s also important to note that skunk removal is a specialty service and it requires special permitting and insurance.
Skunks May Spray You Or Your Pets
Skunks expel that awful odor as a defense mechanism against predators when they feel intimidated. They can spray up to 15 feet! This odor is extremely hard to get rid of, and honestly, most removal remedies just do not work. As others will tell you, skunk odor can take an exceptionally long time to get rid of.
If you get spray in your eyes, you will experience a bad burning sensation and often temporary blindness. Also, the smell is extremely hard to remove.
Skunks living in a crawlspace on your property will defecate, urinate and contaminate the insulation and soil. These droppings will go away in the clean-up process to prevent diseases and parasites.
They also love to tear duct lines and use the insulation in their dens. They often burrow under woodpiles and under piles of leaves.
Skunks May Eat the Vegetables In Your Garden
They often take up residence in the Franklin area under sheds and in hot tubs. Since sheds are often elevated off the ground, this is a picture-perfect place for raising a family. If there is an obvious shelter to have and raise babies, a skunk will seek it!
