Arkansas Skunk Control

Skunk Removal & Exclusion Services 

Skunks are fascinating creatures that are known for their unique black and white coloring, as well as their ability to spray a nasty odor when threatened. While this odor is their main form of defense, it is also what most people associate with them. For this reason, many people are afraid of skunks and want to avoid them at all costs, even though they are not usually aggressive and would rather retreat than spray.

Skunks are also known for digging up lawns and gardens in search of food. If you have a skunk problem, it is important to call a professional wildlife control company to remove them and make sure they don’t come back.

Signs of a Skunk Infestation

Skunks are nocturnal creatures that are most active during the spring and summer months. During this time, they are in search of food and may dig up lawns and gardens in search of insects and grubs. They may also find their way into your home through open windows, doors, or pet doors.

Some of the most common signs of a skunk infestation include:

  • Strong odor: If you notice a strong odor around your property, it could be a skunk. Skunks have a gland located near their anus that produces a foul-smelling liquid, which they can spray up to 10 feet. This odor is their main form of defense and is usually enough to keep predators at bay. However, if they feel threatened, they may spray.
  • Holes in your lawn: Skunks are known for digging up lawns and gardens in search of food. They are especially attracted to areas that have a lot of insects and grubs. If you notice small holes in your lawn, it could be a skunk.
  • Scratching noises: Skunks are excellent climbers and may find their way into your attic or crawlspace. If you hear scratching noises coming from your attic or crawlspace, it could be a skunk.
  • Tracks: Skunks have five toes on their front feet and four toes on their back feet. If you notice tracks around your property that resemble these, it could be a skunk.

If you notice any of these signs, it is important to call a professional wildlife control company as soon as possible. Skunks can cause a lot of damage to your property and may carry diseases, such as rabies. At McCauley Services, our team of experts will conduct a thorough inspection of your property to determine if you have a skunk problem and how they are getting in. We will then develop a customized treatment plan that is designed to get rid of skunks and keep them out for good.

How to Get Rid of Skunks

While there are many do-it-yourself methods for getting rid of skunks, these are often ineffective and can be dangerous. Skunks are known for their ability to spray a nasty odor when threatened, and many people have been sprayed while trying to remove them from their property. In addition, skunks are excellent climbers and can find their way into your attic or crawlspace if you are not careful.

Some of the most common do-it-yourself skunk control methods include:

  • Trapping: There are many different types of traps that can be used to catch skunks. However, these traps are often ineffective and can be dangerous if not used properly. In addition, skunks are nocturnal creatures and are most active at night. This can make it difficult to catch them during the day.
  • Repellents: There are many different types of repellents that can be used to get rid of skunks. However, these are often ineffective and can be dangerous if not used properly. In addition, skunks are excellent climbers and can find their way into your attic or crawlspace if you are not careful.
  • Exclusion: Exclusion is the process of sealing up any entry points that skunks may be using to get into your home. This can be done using a variety of different materials, such as wire mesh, sheet metal, or caulk. However, exclusion is often ineffective and can be dangerous if not done properly.

At McCauley Services, our team of experts is trained to safely and effectively get rid of skunks and keep them out for good. We use a combination of trapping, exclusion, and repellents to ensure that your skunk problem is resolved.

How to Prevent Skunk Intrusion

There are many things that you can do to prevent skunks from coming onto your property. Some of the most effective methods include:

  • Keep your property clean: Skunks are attracted to areas that have a lot of food and shelter. By keeping your property clean, you can help reduce the chances of a skunk infestation.
  • Seal up any entry points: Skunks are excellent climbers and can find their way into your home through open windows, doors, or pet doors. By sealing up any entry points, you can help reduce the chances of a skunk infestation.
  • Remove any food sources: Skunks are attracted to areas that have a lot of food. By removing any food sources, such as garbage cans or bird feeders, you can help reduce the chances of a skunk infestation.
  • Install motion-sensor lights: Skunks are nocturnal creatures that are most active at night. By installing motion-sensor lights, you can help deter skunks from coming onto your property.

While these methods can be effective, they are often not enough to prevent skunks from coming onto your property. If you have a skunk problem, it is important to call a professional wildlife control company to remove them and make sure they don’t come back.
