Critter Wranglers Powell, TN, Skunk Removal
It’s hard to mistake that tell-tale white stripe down its black body or that musky smell it leaves behind. You may know quickly if you have a skunk taking up residence in your home, office, outbuilding or woodpile. Skunks are actually very mild mannered animals that mostly hunt and gather at night while sleeping through the day. Female skunks will take shelter in your crawlspace or under your deck to give her a safe place to hide her babies. Most people prefer to keep their distance but how do you know if the skunks have moved into your space? Here are a few signs that you may have a skunk infestation:
- Shallow holes in the yard, usually conical in shape.
- Strong, unpleasant musky smell.
- Plants low hanging leafs eaten or chewed on.
- Spotting a skunk on or around your property.
If you suspect you are dealing with a skunk problem call Critter Wranglers ASAP! We make skunk removal easy! Do not attempt to eradicate the skunks yourself as they can pose a serious danger to you and your pets. Skunks are a primary carrier of the rabies virus and should only be approached and handled by a professional pest removal company. Also, it is crucial that a professional make sure that all young are trapped or the problem will continue.
With the use of cage traps we will safely and legally remove the pest from your home and dispose of the animals in accordance to your preference as long as it abides with state/federal law.
Once the unwanted pest has been removed, it’s essential that you allow us to animal proof the entry and exit points to ensure that other animals do not return. We also clean up the mess the pest has left behind so that other wildlife is not attracted to the area. We use quality materials and our unique animal proofing techniques to effectively seal out future problems.
Whether it’s a onetime removal of pests or you’re in need of a monthly pest control service, we’ve got you covered. With over 35 years experience there isn’t a pest problem we can’t handle. We serve private residents, commercial spaces, and municipal accounts.
