Skunks eat most everything humans leave out in their garbage – or for their pets. And since skunks can’t climb, they live under your porch, wood pile or house additions. You or your pets will most likely encounter an intruding skunk at dusk.
Worst of all, skunks defend themselves and their litters fiercely from you, your cats and your dogs. When threatened, skunks stamp their feet hiss and growl before they spray, and their infamous skunk spray can project nearly 5 metres.
Skunks also can carry rabies and canine or feline distemper. Keep your pets and family safe by having AAA Professional Wildlife Control humanely remove and relocate your unwelcome skunk guests.
