Skunks can be adorable little critters when you notice them out in nature and can appreciate them from a distance. It’s easy to be forgiving when you don’t have to get close enough to risk getting sprayed. But when they’ve taken up residence on your property, dealing with skunks can be a nuisance. The easiest and most effective way to deal with this issue is to call in the professionals. It’s just not worth the risk of getting sprayed or being injured. Trust your skunk removal in Columbus Ohio to a company with experience evacuating unwanted wildlife.
If you’ve been having trouble with skunks taking up residency on your property, you’ve probably noticed that they don’t make great neighbors. They dig holes in the yard. They invade your space underneath sheds and decks. They smell terrible. And furthermore, they often threaten or spray your pets or even your children. It’s bad enough to deal with a skunk that smells like a skunk, but also having a dog that smells like a skunk and a three year old that smells like a skunk may be enough to convince you it’s time to evict your unwanted tenants.
Often this can be accomplished in a humane fashion with no harm done to the skunk or your property. They can be baited into cages with cat food or other tasty treats, captured, and relocated. Typically if a skunk is brought at least ten miles away from where they were captured, it won’t be coming back.
