AVOID THE SPRAY
Everyone knows what skunks are capable of. Even if you have not been the victim of a skunk spray you no doubt have smelled the noxious odor they can produce. Skunks are small animals and don’t have the ability to inflict much harm on people or other animals. What they do have though are incredibly foul smelling glands that they use to ward off threats. The spray of a skunk can last for days and if your home or pet is sprayed it can be very hard to get rid of the terrible smell. If you notice skunks encroaching on your property or office you need to be proactive and contact a trained animal control professional. Trying to control skunks on your own is just asking for trouble and a quick spray is all it takes to ruin a room in your home or office.
THE 411 ON SQUIRRELS
Before you start talking about how cute squirrels are with their bushy tails, remember that these animals are rodents and have the ability to carry rabies. While it is highly unlikely that a squirrel will attack or bite a human there is always the possibility of unknowingly alarming one and then things can get ugly real fast. Squirrels know no boundaries when it comes to scavenging and will invade homes, offices and trash cans to find food. Many times people will lift a trash can and be startled by a fleeing squirrel. If the squirrel feels threatened it will protect itself and may possibly bite. If you have trees on your property expect to see squirrels. However, if squirrels start to lurk nearer your home or you hear them scurrying about the attic you need to act fast.
