Having Problems With Skunks?

Call Today: 203-758-0555


Skunks are a nuisance, primarily because of the foul-smelling oil they spray when they feel threatened. The smell can be overpowering and is difficult to remove from a pet’s fur or a person’s clothing. Skunks can also dig in yards and gardens. They frequently make their homes under porches, decks, and sheds and search yards for food. If a skunk is around, there is always a chance that it could come in contact with pets or humans and spray.

The best way to deal with skunks at your Hamden, Connecticut home is to keep them from moving onto your property in the first place. If you have a porch, deck, or shed, you should install an exclusion barrier around the perimeter to keep skunks and other wildlife from getting underneath it. You should not leave out pet food or anything else that could attract skunks.


What To Use To Remove Skunks

Some repellents are sold that claim to be able to get rid of skunks. These mothball- and urine-based products don’t work. Some people also recommend high-pitched noisemakers, or ultrasonic sound emitters, but they don’t work either.

The most effective way to deal with skunks that are a nuisance or a cause of concern at your Hamden, Connecticut home is to trap and relocate them. Don’t try to do this yourself because it is likely that you will get sprayed. Contact Anderson Wildlife Control and let us trap and relocate the skunks to another location. We use humane, environmentally-friendly methods, not chemicals or poisons, to remove wildlife from homes in Hamden and the surrounding area.
