Skunk removal is one of our specialties. Our wildlife team traps and remove skunks from back yards, under porches, or in the duct lines, HVAC lines and crawlspaces of your Brentwood area home or business. After skunks are removed, we repair the damage as crawlspace damage often involves some duct damage as well.
If skunks make their home under your porch or home, chances are they will be giving birth there, and maybe even dying there (trust us, the smell of a dead skunk is unimaginable!). Learn more about skunk diseases.
Note: Before relocating a skunk, our skunk removal technicians will always check to see if they have babies in the area.
Our Brentwood wildlife removal experts have the tools and training to safely handle these very strong nuisance animals. Learn more about diseases skunks can carry that can be transmitted to you or your pets.
Skunks expel that awful odor as a defense mechanism against predators when they feel intimidated. They can spray up to 15 feet! This odor is extremely hard to get rid of, and honestly, most removal remedies just do not work. As others will tell you, skunk odor can take a very long time to get rid of.
If you get spray in your eyes, you will experience a bad burning sensation and often temporary blindness. Sprayed clothing is usually discarded as the smell is very hard to remove.
Skunks will often dig holes and burrow under the front steps of homes or buildings, or under decks or sheds to secure a place to live and have babies. Sometimes they dig up your yard in an attempt to find the perfect spot to build their den.
Skunks can burrow under your house and cause major damage to your electrical work and plumbing. These animals’ burrowing could cause weakening of foundation structures which can lead to expensive damage.
Skunks living in a crawlspace on your property will defecate, urinate and contaminate the insulation and soil. These droppings should be removed in the clean-up process to prevent diseases and parasites.
