PROPER SKUNK CONTROL AND HUMANE SKUNK REMOVAL TECHNIQUES
In general, skunks are best controlled through exclusion. This should always involve ensuring that there are no existing holes close to human structures where they can find refuge and create their den in.
An Omega Animal Removal professional may fill these holes using concrete or dirt. They can also use a sturdy wire mesh to cover the holes, only after ensuring that they are not within the dens. This is the most challenging part of skunk control. Omega Animal Removal has biologically trained experts who specialize in skunk removal and behavior. They will help you assess where the animals have made their home and how many there are. They will always ensure that all the skunks are out before undertaking any exclusion initiative. Skunks are opportunistic animals and will always take advantage of any objects they find around that can provide them with cover. Removing cover such as brush, lush vegetation, woodpiles and old vehicles may also help to manage skunk infestation.
Given their off-putting means of defense, it is best for homeowners to leave skunks alone and seek the expert advice and service from skunk Specialists at Omega Animal Removal. They will recommend the best method for skunk removal depending on your particular condition.
Skunks are common guests in any manicured garden. Beautiful fruits and vegetables are alluring bait. The best and most effective way to keep them out and ensure they never come back, is by placing chicken wire covering the entire perimeter of your garden plot. If you have a compost pile then cover it as well.
Getting skunks out of your yard is complicated. All in all, your options will involve first identifying their entry point and where they actually live. Seeing them disappear under a porch, shed or woodpile may indicate their home. Beware that if you try to get them out you will be considered an intruder and they will not hesitate to defend their ‘home’ with their most effective weapon. You might want to buy a live trap as this is the one method you could use to move the skunks out the yard. Disguise the trap with some leaves and some sticks to make it far less visible as skunks are suspicious of changes to their environment.
