SKUNKS

Skunk Removal Services in Philadelphia & Tri-State Area

While relatively harmless to people and pets, skunks are classified as a wildlife nuisance pest due to their ability to spray foul-smelling oily liquid from glands at the base of their tail. Other complaints include taking up residence beneath foundations, porches & sheds, tearing up lawns & landscaping, eating plants from a garden and/or damaging beehives. Skunk removal is best left to a professional wildlife control company to avoid being sprayed or bitten. 877-BUG-FREE provides humane trapping and skunk removal services for residential and commercial properties in the greater Philadelphia area, NJ, MD and DE.

Humane Skunk Trapping & Removal

877-BUG-FREE employs baiting and trapping methods that are safe and humane for the animal and our technicians. We’ll begin with an inspection of your property to determine the number of skunks present on your property and where they have built burrows. Depending on their location, we’ll use effective baiting and live trapping in accordance with the state and municipality regulations. These traps are designed to be comfortable and stress-free to avoid spraying. Our technicians will come back every 1 – 2 days to check the traps. Once the skunk(s) have been caught, we will remove them from your property and safely relocate them to a more conducive environment.

Skunks & Nuisance Wildlife Exclusion

Making your property less attractive to wildlife pests is the most effective way to ensure they do not set up home inside your property or under your deck, shed or porch. Installing exclusion fencing around the perimeter of these structures ensures they cannot dig and crawl under. A thorough inspection of your property by one of our technicians allows us to detect areas where skunks can easily enter and give you tips for exclusion. Sealing and repairing entry points to the attic, roof, gaps between exterior walls, dryer vents and garage doors will safeguard your home against skunks and other wildlife pests.
