Skunks are known for their warning to attack people and a special gland below the tail allow them to spray the powerful liquid up to 15 feet and this scent can cause injuries and sometime even temporary blindness to the eyes. Skunks can consume anything from small insects, worms, rodents, garbage or pet food. Skunks rarely fear from humans and can come up to our houses in rural, semi urban and sometimes even urban areas also.
If you see skunks near to your house, you would like to know how to get rid of skunks. Many conventional methods such as lights, fox urine or wolf urine and mylar balloons are common but rarely found effective for skunks. As skunks come very close to the roadside, so many skunks killed during accidents in night. I have seen many dead skunks on the roadside early in the morning several times.
If you want to get rid of skunks, you may observe that there is no simple way to get rid of skunks, however the population of skunks automatically will come down in a few months and this all happens due to accidents.
The other best way to get rid of skunks is to take help from biological professional to trap these skunks. If you see the number of skunks increasing in your locality call the professional from the nearest location. These professionals are experts in dealing with these animals and can trap these animals and in no way these animals should be killed. The professionals used a trap and keep it in a suitable place and as soon as the skunks enters inside the trap, it will automatically closed and the skunks can be deported to inside of a deep forest.
So to get rid of skunks, it is only the trap method that can be successfully used to trap the skunks. Any untrained person should not use the trap and always the help of professional or expert should be taken to avoid injury to either skunk or humans. Other methods such as fox urine are not effective to get rid of skunks.
Good Luck Getting rid of that Skunk !!
Bye Bye Skunks..CLick Here !
