Striped skunks weigh about 4-12 pounds and measure approximately 22-30 inches long. They are natural scavengers and nuisance animals in urban and residential areas.
Skunks are most active at night because they’re nocturnal in nature and dislike bright light. They are rarely out with the sun and commonly sleep under tight fitting spaces. This includes the porch, patio, deck, or crawl space during the day. Their litter size ranges between 3-6 skunks, and their lifespan is 2-5 years in the wild.
These creatures can communicate through scent marketing, and males often discharge during mating season. If threatened, they spray a highly putrid liquid a maximum distance of 15 feet at 180 degrees. The smell is not only horrible but can also lead to temporary blindness.
You can depend on us for all your skunk removal needs.
Skunks not only alarm your domesticated animals but also transmit diseases like rabies and salmonella. The offensive smell of random discharging by male skunks can also be intolerable.
Call your local animal removal company if you notice these scavengers on your property. We will get rid of a skunk problem safely.
Skunks are a nuisance due to their smell. But they can create a lot of other issues and damage when they nest as well.
Once a skunk enters your crawl space, it’s just the beginning. They will litter your vapor barrier with feces and urine. They will tear at the insulation around your ductwork and can possibly destroy your soft duct lines completely.
This will leave areas exposed for access to the animals. It can also cause higher electric bills since the heat or air will be venting into the crawl space. They will take the insulation and make a nest under the vapor barrier or in a corner of the crawl space. This is where they prefer to have their kits.
If you do not resolve your skunk issue in a timely manner, the damage can be overwhelming.
