Skunk Trapping and Exclusion Services

Do skunks harm people or property?

While skunks are an important source of insect control, most human and skunk interactions are negative. Skunks carry various diseases harmful to both humans and domesticated animals, such as rabies, tularemia, and distemper. Additionally, they can host disease-causing parasites such as fleas, mites, ticks, and tapeworms. 

Damage To Lawns

Skunk digging habits damage lawns, gardens, and golf courses. When threatened or cornered, skunks can shoot their defensive spray up to twenty feet. This mode of defense has been known to cause nausea and even intense pain, especially when shot directly in the eyes.

Skunk Trapping Service Costs

Most skunk trapping services in Naperville involve trapping and removing the animals with ground-level cage traps, which isn't as complex as working on critters in buildings. This ground trapping process takes a few service visits, plus removal trips, if necessary, or euthanizing fees. The cost of skunk trapping isn't too high, usually $150 on up.

Skunk Spray

Skunks are notorious for their anal scent glands, which they can use as a defensive weapon. ... These glands produce the skunk's spray, which is a mixture of sulfur-containing chemicals such as thiols (traditionally called mercaptans), which have an offensive odor. Once a skunk sprays, your house can be a nightmare. 

Do You Need Skunk Control Services?

The idea of controlling skunks seems an unpleasant one to most people. The thought of getting sprayed alone is enough to call a skunk professional for skunk control services. The truth is that it takes an expert with years of experience who knows how to control skunks to limit the amount of skunk damage these animals can do. Controlling skunk problems is something we pride ourselves on here at Naperville Skunk Stoppers.
