Property-Related Skunk Problems
While skunks are sometimes typecast as villains due to their pungent defense mechanism, there are still plenty of other reasons to not want them on or around your property. Given half a chance, skunks will dig up your lawn in search of grubs and other tasty (to them!) morsels. In some cases, they may even burrow into building foundations, causing potential structural damage.
Skunks are omnivores, so they’ll take food wherever they can get it. If you have a garden or crops, skunk damage can put a dent in your harvest. They will also help themselves to unsecured garbage which, in turn, attracts other unwelcome visitors and pests.
The Importance of Skunk Removal
In addition to their unwelcome digging, burrowing, and eating habits, skunks can also carry dangerous illnesses. This can put your family and your pets at risk. Skunks are one of the most frequent carries of the rabies virus, as well as:
- Canine distemper
- Canine hepatitis
Other than the smell, the risk of disease is perhaps the biggest reason relocating skunks away from your property. Lone Star Animal Removal Services is here to provide a humane and effective alternative to traditional skunk control in Lewisville, Dallas, and beyond. Call us today to find out how we can help without harming the animals!
How Do You Get Rid of a Skunk?
At Lone Star Animal Removal Services, we approach skunk removal from a skunk point of view: with food. We use baited cage traps to lure skunks into cages that we can then use to humanely remove them from your property. We relocate them to a suitable, wild location away from your property so that they can go about their skunk business without stinking up yours.
The Lone Star Animal Removal Services will also consult with you regarding preventative measures to reduce the risk of new skunks finding your property an attractive place to visit or set up camp. From securing trash receptacles to enclosing gardens, we’ll help make your neck of the woods as unattractive as possible to skunks who come knocking.
