Skunks expel that awful odor as a defense mechanism against predators when they feel intimidated. They can spray up to 15 feet! This odor is extremely hard to get rid of, and honestly, most removal remedies just do not work. As others will tell you, skunk odor can take a very long time to get rid of. If you get spray in your eyes, you will experience a bad burning sensation and often temporary blindness. Sprayed clothing is usually discarded as the smell is very hard to remove.
Skunks will often dig holes and burrow under the front steps of homes or buildings, or under decks or sheds to secure a place to live and have babies. Sometimes they dig up your yard in an attempt to find the perfect spot to build their den.
Burrowing by skunks could cause weakening of foundation structures which can lead to expensive damage. Skunks can burrow under your house and cause major damage to your electrical work and plumbing.
Skunks living in a crawlspace on your property will defecate, urinate and contaminate the insulation and soil. These droppings should be removed in the clean-up process to prevent diseases and parasites. What should you do? We recommend that you act proactively and call a wildlife removal specialist in the Maryville area to remove the skunk before they have babies or causes major damage. Professional wildlife trappers can certainly get rid of the skunk for you!
Generally, skunks are nocturnal, so they are most active at night. They do not hibernate, but they tend to be inactive during the coldest winter months when many gather in communal dens for warmth. For the remainder of the year, skunks are generally solitary, living and foraging alone.
