Did you know?

Skunk odor spreads over near a kilometer!

Different kinds of rodents and small wild animals can roam around your home (or business), and even make a cozy nest inside or near it. Skunks are no exception.

Skunks try to find food around private residences when the warm season arrives. Throughout the summer, they’ll be circling your home and rummaging in your trash can or in your yard or henhouse for eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and many other yummy scraps that attract them. The skunk also eats mice and other rodents (70% of its diet).

Then, they will lie down in their burrow, usually located in a ditch or sometimes under your balcony or terrace. They raise their young all summer and go into semi-hibernation in the winter season.

Skunks can damage lawns and gardens to search for grubs. She digs conical holes about 8 cm in diameter. She can also be a carrier of rabies. If one of them shows some recklessness and walks around during the day, get away from it and immediately call an exterminator for a safe and effective skunk capture.

Don’t try to capture a skunk on your own! Stay away from it and don’t approach its burrow or its babies. Let us do this potentially dangerous job. Also warn your children to keep a safe distance.

Animal kingdom

The skunk is one of the most respected animals in the animal kingdom. Indeed, instinctively other species of animals know how to recognize this stinking beast and do not want to approach it. Remember that most animals have a stronger sense of smell than humans, imagine the smell!
