Humane Skunk Removal

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.

Skunk Damage

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.

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.

Matt at Alpha Wildlife is such a nice and professional guy. I always like to hire veteran owned companies and you can tell that he has that demeanor about him. He was able to help with the squirrels in our attic in Bartlett, TN. Great guy.

David and Matt at Alpha Wildlife are awesome to work with. We live in Germantown, TN and had rats in our home. They were quick to diagnose the problem and got the rats out of our home. Great work from both of them.

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.
