Skunk Problems

If you have skunks invading your home, you must get rid of them immediately. Skunks are known to spread illnesses and parasites. Skunks spread diseases such as distemper and rabies. If you have pets or domestic animals and poultry on your property, they could get parasites such as ticks, fleas and mites from skunks.

If you ever get sprayed by a skunk, the stink could last for days. There is also the danger of being sprayed in the eyes. This may cause irritation and other health complications. The smell is sickening and is bound to cause nausea.

Keep such perils away by getting these pest wildlife animals trapped and removed from your home.

  • Porch
  • Skunk Trapping

Skunks are medium sized animals with bushy tails. They are usually black in color with two white stripes running down the length of their body right up to the tip of their tail. They can be easily spotted, so if you have a skunk invasion, you won’t have to wait too long before you know it.

These striped miscreants are considered helpful to a certain extent as they feed on smaller pest animals such as mice and rats and even eat insects and insect larvae. But the problem is when their list of edible items interferes with the goods in your garden. Yes, skunks can also eat the vegetables, fruits and other plants on your garden and leave the place messy. They burrow holes and uproot plants and having them live in your garden is not a pretty sight.

At Animal Control Toronto, we deal with skunk removal seriously. Our staff is trained and equipped to trap these skunks with efficiency. We inspect your property as we know that skunks can live in any nook and corner.

So, if you have seen a skunk on your property, call us at 647-560-3988 and book an inspection appointment.

Skunks - Some Information You Need to Know

Skunks are part of the weasel family. They are nocturnal and will only step out of their hiding spots at night so that they can forage for food. They even forage through trash and can tear up trash bags in search of something to eat, creating a mess all over.

They feel threatened easily and can spray an oily liquid compound from their anus, up to 20 feet. So, even if you try to move away it may be too late. They even scratch or bite if provoked. It is mostly the rabid skunks that tend to bite humans. Skunks do not proactively bite humans otherwise. But the main reason that we would advise you to stay away from them is because of the spray defense mechanism.

Skunks like to dig and burrow holes. They use their sharp claws and teeth to search for grubs and other insects in your garden. They can ruin your entire garden in a matter of minutes. They uproot plants in search of insects to eat. They even damage plants while trying to eat the fruits or vegetables off them.

Unwarranted Skunk Invasions

Skunks are quick and can escape easily when chased. We do not advise homeowners to attempt catching these miscreants bare-handed as it could cause more harm than good. You need to have the right knowledge and expertise to catch skunks. Skunks are carriers of diseases such as rabies and you could risk contracting it if you got too close to one.

One of the well-known and most obvious reasons for people to avoid getting to close to skunks is the obnoxious smelling spray that they emit from the glands around their anus. The smell of this spray is very difficult to get off and if you have any nosy pets that accidentally get close to a skunk you would be left with a smelly pet for days.

Skunks can cause a great deal of property damage, usually close to ground level. They do not climb up in high places and will be usually seen on the ground. This is why they look for hiding places in lower areas of your home, such as below your porch, in your garden or under the deck.

You can get rid of such pest invasions by simply contact Animal Control Toronto and we will guide you with the removal and control of skunks.

Cleaning and Disinfecting

Raccoons and squirrels will use your attic as a latrine. The longer they stay they worse things will get. We safely remove feces and deodorize the area with commercial grade products that break down odours and pathogens. Once animals are out we deodorize the attic  and entry points the animals used to remove any animal scent. We use commercial products that destroy odors from what animals have left behind whether it being feces, urine or carcasses.

When animals have been in an attic for a long time the insulation gets compressed and contaminated beyond repair. Compressed insulation means that it produces a lesser R value. As a result it has lost its insulation capacity and needs to be replaced. We remove contaminated insulation and clean the attic space so that it is ready for a new batch of insulation. Aside from the pathogens that will survive in your warm attic, insulation contaminated with urine and feces will smell in the living area.
