Darien wildlife control tip of the month:
HOW TO GET RID OF SKUNKS
As mentioned before skunks are getting closer and closer to suburban and urban areas. In order to prevent
encounters there are someDarien pest control measurements to be taken.
First of all, you need to make everything that is in your power to make a pests-proof home.
It would be very wise to eliminate all direct sources of food and water that might attract skunks to your property.
You should also get rid of all adequate places where skunk might build a den.
Fences and Darien wildlife removal home repairs are very welcomed. Skunk is a poor climber and therefore a little higher fence should do the
trick and protect your home area just fine. But on the other hand it is quite a digger; therefore the Darien animal control fence should be
at least one-foot-deep in the ground. The best solution is an L-typed fence. To avoid the interaction with skunk or its
family you need to repair all openings and close all spaces under buildings with wood or metal plates combined with some
extra fences. The building protection has to be tight enough to prevent the digging.
Make sure that yard and other buildings are properly cleaned with no redundant piles or clutter of any kind.
There are many possibilities to discourage skunks from entering your premises some people might even use repellents. Natural
or store-bought- If they actually work, that could be open to discussion. Anyhow, people use cayenne pepper, citrus peels, hot
pepper spray, predator´s urine, moth balls and ammonia in order to distract skunks, hoping they won´t invade their home. Another
possibility is also playing loud music and bright lights in the direct vicinity of their den.
However, if you already have unwanted visitors in your home the best way to get rid of them is placing the trap and catches them
alive. Trap should be properly baited and positioned. Proper location and timing when trap has been positioned are very important.
After trapping the skunk, you should cover the trap with a blanket. Disoriented skunk is less likely to spray around. Carefully put
the trap with skunk to a transport vehicle and relocate it to a more suitable environment. The new location must have enough food,
water and a possibility of a Darien animal trapping shelter.
It doesn´t really matter how you get rid of the skunk as long as your Darien exterminator method is humane and doesn´t cause any suffering to the animal.
