Most people try to avoid any up-close encounters with skunks. They have a distinct look, as well as a recognizable vile odor that is not soon forgotten! Unfortunately, skunks have been well adapted to the urban life in the Knoxville TN area.
Skunks generally eat anything – from plants to berries and bugs, to rodents, reptiles, pet food and trash. Pretty much anything edible in your yard serves as a great food source for them. Skunks also love to invade gardens and chicken yards. Often skunks will dig dens right next to your home or commercial building on your property, which makes them a nuisance that you definitely will want removed.
Skunks are difficult to trap as they are very smart and alert creatures who are shy and spray anything that makes them feel threatened.
Tip: Before relocating a skunk, always check to see if they have babies in the area. People describe baby skunk noises as having a shrieking sound.
Pungent skunk odor is a reason to call a professional for skunk removal on your property.

Besides their foul odor, you want skunks away from your home or property because they come with diseases. Learn more about diseases skunks can carry.
