Skunk removal

It is very important to hire a professional to trap and perform skunk removal services. Trapper Rob has many years of experience in successfully trapping skunks and removing skunks from properties in a safe, humane, and odor-and-nausea-free manner. Attempting to trap and remove a skunk yourself can be dangerous, as skunks are known carriers of rabies. Trapping a skunk in an open cage like the one pictured to the right can put both you and the skunk in a dangerous and stinky position. Trapper Rob uses a speciality tube-trap which restricts the skunk’s tail from lifting to spray and allows the skunks to be removed safely according to the Department of Fish and Game wildlife guidelines.

Once a skunk trap has been placed, a skunk will usually be trapped overnight if the skunk is living on your property, or it can take several days if the skunk is taking up residence at a neighbor’s. While most of the time there will be just one skunk found on your property, there are some cases where a family of skunks have taken up residence and multiple skunk removals will need to be performed.

Skunk Odor Removal

If you or one of your pets is sprayed by a skunk, a home remedy mixture of 1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda, and 1-2 teaspoons liquid dish soap may eliminate most of the odor, but it is not always effective. Make sure to leave this home remedy on for at least 5 minutes before rinsing with water. It is recommended to buy a commercial product with neutroleum alpha, a scent-masking solution. If skunk musk is around yours or your pet’s nose, mouth, or eyes, temporary blindness for 10-15 minutes may result. Rinse with water.

Why Is There A Skunk On My Property?

Skunks prefer to nest underneath building structures that are dark and hard to access. Skunks are attracted to warm places to dig and create a den and are often found in holes near heating units, under stairs, decks, or porches. Lumber, junk cars, and sheds are other potential homes that may attract a skunk to take up residence on your property. In the Sacramento region, skunks are often attracted to properties that have dog or cat food sitting outside, and less commonly human food improperly disposed of. If you have a rodent problem, the rodents will quickly attract skunks as well.

Skunks hunt and eat insects as their primary food source, but they will scavenge for anything that looks, smells, or resembles food. Skunks get bored of the same food easily and often look for different types of food. It is important to identify where the skunk is entering and leaving your property, as well as what attracted the skunk to your property to begin with. By removing the food attracting the skunk to your property, you can help ensure future skunks will not be so tempted to take up residence on your property. Trapper Rob can help with a variety of exclusion services to dissuade skunks.
