Skunk Removal San Bernardino County, California
Skunk Removal San Bernardino
While skunks typically live in clearings, pastures and open lands, they can still show up in your neighborhood; especially around the wooded areas of San Bernardino. We have begun to get more calls from clients who need to have skunks removed from their home. What some people may not realize is that skunks are crazy good diggers. They often burrow under homes to create a habitat for themselves or to find more food. They will burrow under porches, buildings and even foundations.This can create extensive damage which can become expensive if the skunks are not removed in a timely fashion.
Skunks will also dig holes in your yard, garden or crop fields. Sometimes, tracks are quite easy to spot and can be identified as belonging to a skunk. Their tracks display easily recognizable claw marks and hind feet that are typically around two and half inches long.
To avoid major damage to your home, especially your foundation which can be a very costly job to fix, it is best to call a professional to remove the skunks from your home. A All Animal Control specializes in efficient skunk removal that is completely humane and can provide seal up methods to keep the skunks from returning to your home.
Other Facts about Skunks
- A skunk can spray it’s odor up to ten feet and can be detected from up to a mile and a half away.
- The skunks’ scientific name, “Mephitis mephitis” is actually a term meaning “stench”. Appropriate right?
- Skunks can eat venomous snakes due to their immunity to its venom. Skunks are known to eat rattlesnakes, which is actually a benefit for us here in California.
- While skunks can hear and smell quite well, they have terrible vision; which is ironic since their defense mechanism revolves around a very foul odor.
- Despite the rumor, not every skunk has rabies. Keep in mind that every mammal can contract rabies. If you fear you may have come in contact with an animal that has rabies, get yourself checked. If a skunk is infected with rabies you can only contract it from them through their saliva, from a bite.
- Skunks really don’t spray unless they are defending their young; as a matter of a fact, they will give you several warning signs telling you to back off before they spray. Skunks will display warning signs such as lowering its head, arching its back, lifting tail and stamping their feet.
- During the early part of the year (February-June) you will start seeing skunks as road kill a lot more frequently. Most skunks get hit while crossing the road at night, as they are looking for a mate.
- Skunks will roll caterpillars on the ground to remove the hairs before eating them. Talk about picky!
