Skunk Removal In Arlington TN

Skunk Trapping In Arlington TN - Skunk Removal

Are skunks causing a problem for you in Arlington?  We receive many calls from our clients in that area, and every so often its a request for skunk trapping.

Seeing a skunk amble across your property would make anyone a little nervous.  After all, these beautiful animals have a certain reputation for smelling up the place.  And nobody wants to be on the receiving end of a skunk spray!

 At Apex Wildlife Control, our technicians set out humane, live traps to remove skunks.  We check these traps every 36 hours as mandated by TN state law.  Once trapped, we remove and relocate these lovely creatures to a wildlife area over twenty miles away from your home.  Its a win – win!

Skunk Trapping In Arlington TN - Skunk Damage

It always fun to watch wildlife in their natural habitat, especially when its a mother with her babies.  However, it’s definitely not fun to watch a skunk family ruin your lawn and destroy your vegetable garden!
 
Skunks are omnivores, which means they will eat both meat and plants.  Most of the time, skunks are content hunting for rats, mice, lizards, frogs, snakes and eggs.  But they won’t turn down a bite of your fresh summer fruits and vegetables.  And just like other scavengers such as raccoons and opossums, skunks are nocturnal.  If they are in the mood for a midnight snack, they will tip over your trash cans in a heartbeat in search of some yummy leftovers!

Skunk Removal In Arlington TN - Skunk Diseases

Do skunks carry diseases?  You bet they do!
 
Skunks are one of the top carriers of rabies in North America.  This doesn’t mean all skunks carry rabies, but you should keep your pets away from a wild skunk for a variety of reasons.  Skunks will also carry distemper which can be transmitted to dogs as well.
 
Leptospirosis, Hepatitis and Tularemia are three more diseases that wild skunks can spread either by contact with their feces and urine, or through bites and scratches.  These are serious diseases which can be deadly for your family.

Skunk Trapping In Arlington TN - That Terrible Smell!

Everyone has smelled the unmistakable scent of a skunk while driving down the road.  When skunk meets car, there is always a lasting aroma that will be wafting around that area for days to come.  That’s the smell people think about when they see a skunk on their property.

But did you know that skunks don’t really want to spray you?  It’s true.  After they spray, it can take up to ten days for a skunk to renew his supply of musk.  During this time, the skunk is almost defenseless.  Therefore, skunks would rather save their spray for life or death situations.

If you see a skunk lift its tail or stomp its feet, it is giving your fair warning to keep away.  It would be wise to listen!

We also perform wildlife trapping in Arlington TN for rats, mice, squirrels, moles, 

opossums, raccoons, armadillos and much more.
