Problems Caused by Skunks
Skunks are highly adaptable creatures that can be found everywhere from cities to rural areas. They often live close to humans and make their homes around and under houses, sheds, and garages. In addition to seeing the animals, you can detect skunks by their distinctive odor or finding a lot of small holes around your yard, where they dig for food. If you have a skunk odor around your deck or shed, a skunk may have moved in.
Skunks are known to burrow and den under:
- Commercial buildings
If you have noticed skunks, smelled their odor on your property, or seen evidence that they may have burrowed under your porch or deck, it is best to call a professional for an inspection to avoid accidentally being sprayed. Our wildlife control experts are well-versed in all types of wildlife and have the skill to locate and remove any critters that may have moved in.
Humane Skunk Removal
At Pestex, we use safe and humane methods for skunk control in Boston to remove the wildlife from your home without harming it. We begin with a thorough inspection to identify the places of harborage that skunks have used to make themselves at home on your property. It is important to locate how the animals have gained access and their dens to ensure that they are safely removed.
After the skunks have been removed, they will take most of their smell with them. We will take the time to thoroughly clean and sanitize the accessible areas and provide tips about how you can discourage infestations of skunks or other wildlife in the future. Our services are always customized to your unique requirements.
