Orlando Skunk Removal
The skunk is a member of the weasel family. The Striped Skunk weighs between 4 to 10 pounds and can be anywhere between 24 to 30 inches long. They are easily recognizable with their black and white coloring. They usually only like about 2 to 4 years and are typically on their own after their first year. Skunks are generally nocturnal animals and like to forage at night for plant and animal matter. They sleep during the day and tend to not be very active during the winters. Skunks have sharp claws on the front feet used for digging insects and worms.
Skunks are famous for their defensive tactic, which involves spraying a highly odiferous liquid when threatened. This odor is one of the biggest concerns that skunks bring about and the main reason you’ll want to get rid of them.
They will often make shelter under sheds, decks and porches, marking these areas with their scent. During cold winter months, several skunks will gather and share the same den. It is also important to keep watch during the months of January to March, as this is mating season for skunks.
They eat poultry, eggs, vegetables and fruit. Evidence of digging can be spotted as they spend their time searching for insect larvae. You may also find your sod rolled back and damaged by these creatures. Skunks can carry diseases such as leptospirosis, tularemia, Q-fever, canine hepatitis, canine distemper, and listeriosis. All of these diseases can be carried by skunks without significant or identifiable symptoms. They can carry ticks, fleas, lice, roundworm, tapeworm, and more, which can be harmful to your pets.
If you are experiencing any signs of a skunk infestation, please give us a call for wildlife removal services.
