HOW TO KILL A SKUNK?
Human settlements are expanding every year, inviting more and more wildlife to their home, while houses are getting
closer to the animals. Even though skunk will avoid interaction with people, sooner or later they will come across one
another. A lot of people just want to kill the pest as soon as they spot it. Skunks are highly undesirable due to their
ability to spray some sticky and horrible smelling spray. Furthermore, they are also the carriers of the rabies, everybody
is so scared of. There are several options how to kill a skunk, but the biggest challenge is how to kill the skunk without
getting sprayed. Here are some New Canaan animal trapping options how to kill the skunk:
• Lethal traps
Shooting the animal is quite spread and more suited New Canaan exterminator method for rural areas in the country. Suburban and urban areas represent
much higher risk when shooting something, while there are a lot of other persons and pets that might get shot by mistake involved.
Shooting itself seems quite undemanding but there are some serious problems you need to think about, when deciding, whether or not
to kill the skunk. The shooting area needs to be professionally disinfected. The blood of the skunk might be infected with several
serious diseases that can be transferred to humans. A child´s play in that kind of areas could be potentially dangerous for health.
And of course there is a proper disposal of carcasses involved as well.
Lethal traps are one of the worst options how to kill the skunk. This New Canaan pest control option is inhumane and very painful for the animal. The usual
lethal trap is a spring-loaded connibear trap. It kills by choking the animal. These traps can be lethal not only to skunks but to
other unwanted targets as well. They are banned in some areas.
Poisoning is also a very bad New Canaan wildlife removal choice while killing a skunk. Poison is a big threat to everyone around, other animals or even to a child.
There is really no need for the poison to be used in the first place. In many cases animal doesn´t eat enough of poison and it will just
make it very sick. It might take several weeks before recovering. The other problem that might occur is that skunk crawls in some very
unreachable part of your property and dies there. The smell of dissolving carcass you can´t reach is going to be unbearable.
There is really no need for using inhumane New Canaan animal control methods of killing the pests or even killing it at all.
Trapping the animal alive and relocating it to a more suitable location is always a god solution. However, you must be always wearing
gloves when handling the skunks. Whether in traps or their carcasses...
