Skunk Removal in the Houston and DFW areas
Skunk musk, in all of its acrid and nauseating glory, is one of those scents that can instantly put a person on high alert. Nobody wants to be surprised by a wild skunk; such encounters often end in disaster. However, what do you do when you discover a skunk living on your property?
If even the thought of handling a skunk is enough to make you anxious, you’re certainly not alone. Skunks are so notorious for their noxious fumes that even bears have been known to back off when they see those tell-tale black and white markings! Skunks can (accurately) spray their musk up to 10 feet, so people who try to stay as far away from them as possible are wise to do so.
Unfortunately, skunks love to burrow and make tunnels, so it’s not uncommon for them to “set up shop” underneath human houses, sheds, or patio decks. There, they can cause trouble by digging up your yard or garden, stealing food from outdoor pet bowls, and knocking over trash cans. It’s also possible for skunks to pass rabies, leptospirosis, or intestinal roundworms on to humans. And, of course, there’s the obvious risk of a family member, houseguest, or pet getting sprayed during an encounter with the resident skunk.
No doubt about it—a skunk “squatter” should be sent packing immediately. But it’s definitely a job best left to a professional!
