Why and How Do Skunks Enter Your Home?
Skunks usually inhabit wooded areas, but they may enter your home or yard in search of food sources. They can enter through small holes in your home (e.g. the small hole by your a/c unit), and they will also dig under your homes foundations or underneath your porch or shed.
Three Reasons Why You Don’t Want Skunks in Your Home
One: Diseases and parasites
Skunks can carry various diseases (especially rabies), and these diseases can harm both you and your pets. Skunks can also carry various parasites like fleas, mites and ticks.
Skunks like to dig and forage around you home, which means they can do extensive damage to your garden or lawn. They also like to eat vegetables and fruit in your garden, which can be troublesome if you like gardening.
Skunks can be physically dangerous. When under threat they can shoot out foul-smelling chemicals that can cause you nausea, especially if it gets in your face. They can fire from long distances, and multiple times. This is also dangerous for your pets.
How to Remove Skunks from Your Home?
The most effective way to remove skunks from your home is by trapping, because skunks will easily go into traps. Our Dallas skunk removal team have the right skunk traps for your home, and they know how to handle the skunks safely. After trapping the skunks we then relocate them in a humane manner.
Warning: Do not trap or handle skunks without assistance from a professional Dallas skunk removal service. Skunks can be dangerous when they feel threatened, and they require special training.
What Measures Can You Take to Keep Skunks from Entering Your Home?
You can take steps yourself to prevent skunks going in or around your home:
Kill their food sources – Skunks will settle more permanently in your home if you unwittingly provide them with a food source. So try to secure your trash cans, remove pet food from outside your home, remove fruits and berries that fall on the ground, and remove any garbage that may be lying around.
Kill potential habitation spots- Fill up with dirt any place where they could possibly decide to inhabit, especially under the foundations of your home. Fill in abandoned burrows with dirt and gravel. (We can do all this for you as part of our Dallas skunk control services).
Make your yard clean – Clean up areas around your property, especially when it comes to woodpiles, brush, junk piles, etc.
Block them with fencing – Skunk fencing can also be an effective way to prevent skunks, because skunks are not the best when it comes to climbing. You may want to consider an exclusion barrier around your deck
