How Skunks Can Damage Homes & Businesses

Everyone knows that skunks give off a powerful odor when frightened or defensive. This odor can be unpleasant to smell around your home or commercial property. Instead of trying to tackle the issue on your own and getting skunked, give our experts a call first. We have the tools and know-how to safely and effectively remove skunks from your property. 

Skunks can be a nuisance, but can also cause damage to your property such as: 

  • Skunk burrows: Skunks are expert diggers and are known to build burrows and tunnel systems under buildings, decks, and even concrete foundations, which can threaten the structural integrity of your home or place of business. 
  • Skunk holes: Different than skunk burrows, skunk holes are more shallow and are used in search of a meal. The loosened dirt can be a hazard to people and pets that may unexpectedly step into the loose area. 
  • Skunk spray: Not only does skunk spray have a powerful odor that is difficult to get rid of, but it can also cause damage to furniture, paint, and flooring.

The above problems are just some ways that skunks can be a nuisance or danger around your home or commercial property. In addition to these physical problems, skunks can spread diseases such as canine distemper, leptospirosis, and tularemia, all of which can be dangerous to humans and pets alike. Because of these hazards, we do not recommend that you attempt to address a skunk problem on your own. 

Skunks are nocturnal animals, so you are more likely to smell one than see one. However, if you notice that the smell in your yard is lingering for days on end, it is a good idea to call in the experts.

    Yes. Wildlife Resolutions offers several different options with controlling mice; we trap, do exclusion work and offer an ongoing bait station program.
  • What’s the average cost for bat exclusion?
    This answer is very complicated. The cost of all exclusion is based upon the amount of work. We’ve had some bat jobs at $400 and other much higher. On average most bat jobs fall between $2,500 and $4,500.
  • Does Wildlife Resolutions handle insect pests?
    We do. Currently we offer Spider, Ant, fly, cockroach, and stinging insect control. We are not offering bed bug control at this time.
  • What if I get a new roof?
    We can arrange a time to come back and check our work after the roofers are finished. If we has previously installed metal guards in soffit areas or on the ridge vent, we can remove these before the roof work is done so that they can be reinstalled once the new roof is on. This is only feasible if the new roof is the same design and material as the roof we worked on.
