Skunks Giving You Headaches?

Skunks are drawn to areas where food is readily available and will choose those locations to create their nests and raise their babies. Skunks can become problematic, particularly if they spray. If you have a skunk in your yard in Wallingford, contact Anderson Wildlife Control to have it removed before it becomes a nuisance.
How To Avoid Skunks In Your Yard
One of the best ways to keep skunks out of your yard is to make it unattractive to them. If you have pets, feed them indoors. Pet food left outside is sure to attract skunks in the area, especially if it is left outside overnight, when skunks are typically active. Leaving unsecured trash outside overnight can also lure skunks to your home. It would be a better idea to put the trash out by the curb in the morning as close to pickup time as possible.
If a skunk finds your Wallingford property hospitable, it will be inclined to nest there. This can be especially problematic as mating season approaches. Skunks typically mate from February to April. During mating season, females may spray males that they reject. Skunks are well known for the unpleasant odor associated with the oil they spray.
Don’t Try To Remove It Yourself
Although skunks are generally not aggressive, they will not hesitate to spray people or pets if they feel threatened. If you have a skunk on your Wallingford property, don’t try to remove it yourself. If you frighten it, it is likely that you will get sprayed, and the odor can be very difficult to remove.
Call the professionals at Anderson Wildlife Control instead. We will use safe and humane methods to remove the skunk from your Wallingford property and relocate it to another area where it will no longer be a nuisance.
