How To Identify A Skunk Problem

Appearance- The average skunk is 20 to 30 inches from nose to tail. They typically weigh between 6 to 10 pounds. Skunks have distinctly striped black and white fur, and long claws which they use to dig.

Behavior - Skunks are nocturnal, and generally live alone. When threatened, skunks will release a foul smelling spray in their defense. They have strong forelegs which are used for digging for food and to create a den.

Skunks tend to shy away from humans; you may catch a glimpse of a skunk around your home if they have made themselves comfy on your property. Most skunks will not enter your home, but will often dig to create a den in a yard.

Why You Might Have Skunks

Skunks are nocturnal and can find themselves anywhere from a rural farm, suburban home to an urban apartment. They are attracted to food, and each one of us has a garbage can full of delicious items that skunks would love to munch on. Often skunks will take up residence under a porch or shed where they can find shelter.

Reasons To Treat Your Skunk Problem Immediately

Skunks will spray if nervous or provoked. The liquid they spray out can get on your skin, clothes, and pets and while it may cause a little burn, the biggest issue is the amount of time the stench lingers - roughly four or five days.

While skunks can be beneficial by eating a lot of smaller pests such as grubs, moles and other pests that are known to harm vegetation, skunks can cause a lot of damage to your yard and garden.

Skunks causing damage outside your Virginia home can begin to cause issues like garbage becoming scattered which can attract other animals and a pose a health hazard for you and your family. At this point, it is best to contact a professional for Virginia skunk control.
