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.
These creatures also love to tear duct lines and use the insulation in their dens as they often burrow under woodpiles and under piles of leaves. Additionally, skunks can ravage your garden and eat all vegetables.
In the Murfreesboro area, skunks often take up residence under sheds and in hot tubs since sheds are often elevated off the ground. This ends up being a perfect place for raising a family. If there is an obvious shelter to have and raise babies, a skunk will seek it!
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.
A mother skunk should never be relocated without her young. If you are not familiar with skunk habitats and trapping, call experts from Alpha Wildlife to remove the skunks for you.
Most often, skunk removal is performed by setting traps or by wildlife exclusion. Skunk exclusion is simply the process of physically keeping the skunk from entering a hole or crack that allows entrance into the den they have made. Skunk trapping is more common in the Murfreesboro, TN area. After skunks are removed from your property, a wildlife specialist will fill the holes with cement to ensure that no other skunks in your area will utilize these open dens.
