Some Facts On Skunks

Skunks may be infamous for their pungent odor, but they should also be known as destructive pests. Not only can the smell linger in residences and ventilation systems long after an encounter with a skunk – these animals have been known to cause significant damage to homes and landscaping.

  • Skunks are notorious for their mischievous digging behavior which can cause major structural damage, especially to outdoor structures like porches, bridges and sheds. Not only do they have the capacity to dig through wood or coatings but being nocturnal creatures makes it even harder to stop them.

 

  • Skunks are notorious for their love of scavenging in yards, scrounging around for tasty snacks like juicy bugs and earthworms or rummaging through the garbage.

 

  • Skunks have smelly superpower that can spread across an entire building in a matter of days, lingering for weeks and even months! Their wicked weapon? A chemical product so potent it becomes airborne with the circulation of air. Time to grab those masks – quick.

 

  • Skunks infected with the deadly rabies virus are a greater risk than raccoons and foxes for transmitting this disease to humans and pets. These skunks may be found anywhere in Canada, but it can often be hard to tell which ones have been affected by the virus. However, one way you know is if they transmit rabies via their saliva – so remember that when dealing with them.

 

  • Skunk spray has the potential to be more than just an unpleasant odor; it can cause dizziness, nausea and even temporary blindness due its high concentration of sulfuric acid. Fortunately, there are remedies for skunk-spray victims that can help diminish these harmful effects.

 

  • Families of skunks can be quite big, often gathering a group of 4 to 6 babies all cozily nestled together in one spot. It’s no surprise that these social critters love spending time with their own kind.

 

  • To keep skunks away from your home, take the ultimate step and create a built-in defense plan! Get rid of all entrances to block their access before surrounding the area with a deep trench. With this two-part process you can add an extra layer of security that keeps unwanted visitors out for good.

 

  • Skunks are masterful at hiding, making it tough to find their burrows. Although eliminating the adult is usually effective in getting rid of an invasion, unfortunately that doesn’t always work as babies can still remain hidden from sight in zones beyond our reach. Thankfully though we can look for surface holes and any destruction caused by skunk activity on lawns or gardens as warning signs which help us locate nests before things worsen.

J’avais un problème de rattons dans mon grenier. J’ai contacté Vincent de chez Aspen Wildlife Control. Des le lendemain matin, un représentant de la compagnie est venu et a pris des photos et vérifié les dégâts. Deux jours plus Vincent et deux autres employés sont venus. Ils ont sorti 3 bébés. Ils ont par la suite scellés mon sous toit au complet 100% à l’épreuve des ratons. La mère est par la suite venue récupérer ses bébés et reparti dans la nature. L’équipe a fait un excellent travail et très professionnel. Je les recommande très fortement.
