Skunk Removal in Tennessee

Identifying Skunks

Identifying Skunks

The striped skunk has two distinct broad stripes that may run the length of its body appearing either mostly white or black. The Eastern spotted skunk doesn't have distinct striping, generally having black and white patches. Both species are about the size of a house cat with a small head, short legs, and bushy tail. Usually most active at night, skunks feed on small animals and plants. 

Problems and Damage

Problems and Damage

Lawns with tempting vegetation such as nut trees, gardens, and bird feeders are especially inviting to skunks. Once they have found a viable food source skunks can create burrows under porches or sheds, and if they can find entry they can inhabit your crawlspace. When a skunks makes it's way into your home their feces and urine contaminate the area. If left unattended skunks can begin to cause damage to duct work or even cause structural issues. Skunks are known to carry rabies as well as leptospirosis, canine distemper, and roundworm. However, not all skunks carry diseases but any scratches or bites should be treated immediately by a medical professional.
