Skunks Causing Problems In Milford?

Call Today: 203-758-0555

 

Skunks are a common problem for homeowners in Milford, Connecticut. They frequently move into spaces under sheds, decks, and porches and give birth. Skunks are notorious for the foul-smelling oil they spray on animals or people if they feel threatened. The smell can be difficult to get out of a pet’s fur or a person’s clothing. Skunks also often dig up yards and gardens in their search for food.

 

Once On Your Property They Do Not Want to Leave

Once a skunk makes its home on your property, it will not want to leave. Every time it comes out to look for food, there will be a chance of it coming into contact with you or your pet and spraying.

If you are a homeowner in Milford, you should take some precautions to keep skunks out of your yard. If your property includes a deck, porch, or shed, set up an exclusion barrier around it so that skunks cannot crawl under it and create a nest.

 

Leave the repellents alone

Some companies sell repellents that they claim can deter skunks, but don’t believe those claims. Repellents don’t work on skunks. High-pitched noisemakers won’t keep them away either.

If skunks are living on your property, the only truly effective way to get rid of them is to trap and relocate them. Don’t try to do this yourself. If a skunk gets frightened, there is a good chance that you will get sprayed, which will be a very unpleasant experience.
