How to get rid of skunks and other urban wildlife
As with the other urban wildlife species we deal with, eviction, exclusion and pest proofing are the main techniques used when removing a skunk from your property. Our skunk removal services are humane, we do not trap and relocate skunks.
Skunks give birth in the spring when the female skunk looks for a place to build her nest. Skunks have poor eyesight and very limited climbing skills, so they usually live near and below the ground level, underneath garages, sheds, porches, or hollow concrete structures. They are usually a nocturnal easygoing creature and can help eliminate pests like insects and rodents, but they can dig wholes, destroy landscape, build nests and leave their potent smell around your property.

You can look for digging and damage to your lawn and foundation. Aside that, you can often smell their noxious skunk spray.
