Professional Pest Control Services
Skunks, if startled or cornered will defend themselves. Their first attempt to defend themselves will be by hissing or by stomping their feet. Raising their bushy black and white tail is another way of sending a message to stay clear. During the months of April and June the skunks begin raising their kits. When the kits mature and reach juvenile status they will begin to accompany their mother foraging for food. This is when the skunk will spray you offensively and without warning. Skunks can spray you from 20 feet away and once they have a target, they very rarely miss. The odor removal process is time consuming and quite difficult to accomplish. Skunks raising their bushy black and white tail is their way of sending a message to stay clear.

Skunks can certainly be a nuisance to say the least. They are harmless, however, they can cause serious damage to a property while foraging for food. Skunks have strong forefeet and long nails, which make them excellent diggers. They dig large holes in lawns causing extensive damage.
Skunks are omnivorous and feed on a wide variety of food sources. They are second to raccoons in carrying and transmitting rabies.
