Skunk Removal – Oak Ridge TN
Skunk In Duct Line or HVAC Line?
Skunk removal is one of our specialties. We trap and remove skunks from back yards, under porches, or in the duct lines, HVAC lines and crawlspaces of your Oak Ridge area home or business. After skunks are removed, we repair the damage as crawlspace damage often involves some duct damage as well.
Skunks love to tear duct lines and use the insulation in their dens. Knowing their behavior and habits help with safe removal. Once a skunk has moved under your home, quick action is required to minimize their damage. The skunk can spay or die inside your duct line! No doubt this would be quite unpleasant!

If skunks make their home under your porch or home, chances are they will be giving birth there, and maybe even dying there (trust us, the smell of a dead skunk is unimaginable!). Learn more about skunk diseases.
Note: Before relocating a skunk, always check to see if they have babies in the area. Baby skunks are called ‘kits’ and a group of skunks is called a ‘surfeit’ (impress someone with this during trivia night!).
Our Oak Ridge wildlife removal experts have the tools and training to safely handle these very strong nuisance animals. Learn more about diseases skunks can carry that can be transmitted to you or your pets.
Skunks Carry Diseases
Skunks carry diseases and parasites, including rabies, distemper and mange. Any of these diseases can be transmitted to humans as well as your pets. Get all pets vaccinated against these harmful and fatal diseases as soon as possible.
Important: Skunk removal is a specialty service that requires special permitting and insurance.
Skunks Will Spray You or Your Pets
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 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.
Skunks love to tear duct lines and use the insulation in their dens.
Skunks often burrow under woodpiles and under piles of leaves.
Skunks will eat all vegetables in your garden!
Skunks often take up residence in the Oak Ridge area under sheds and in hot tubs. Since sheds are often elevated off the ground, this is a picture perfect place for raising a family. If there is an obvious shelter to have and raise babies, a skunk will seek it!
Before relocating a skunk, always check to see if they have babies in the area. If you are not familiar with skunk habitats and trapping, call experts from Alpha Wildlife to remove the skunks for you. A mother skunk should never be relocated without her young.
