Skunk Control and Removal
Skunks breed from winter to early spring giving birth in May or June. They give birth to a litter of 3-10 young. Young skunks stay in the den for up to eight weeks before becoming independent from their mother. Skunks are omnivores, eating anything from small mammals to nuts and fruits, which is why they have adapted to living very close to homes. Getting rid of the skunk problem must be fast to avoid terrible odours.
Damage and Nuisance Caused by Skunks
Skunks share the same appetites for destruction as opossums. They both like to nest in dark places like under decks, porches and pool rooms. Skunks dig to get to nest sites which can cause damage to lawns and gardens. Once they have nested they can be quite the problem and leave a lingering and unpleasant odour. If you come into contact with a skunk do not approach it, skunks can spray up to 15 feet accurately.
