Skunk Removal In Bartlett TN

Skunk Trapping In Bartlett TN - Skunk Removal

You wouldn’t expect to see a skunk in the heart of Bartlett, but these smelly little creatures will often set up housekeeping in a wooded area or park right around the corner from your home.  And its just skunk nature to travel about looking for food around the neighborhood.

Fortunately, skunks are very peaceful animals who would rather just be left alone.  These beautiful creatures rarely attack unless provoked, or if they think their babies are in danger of being hurt.

At Apex Wildlife Control, our technicians are skilled in trapping and relocating these stinky little fellows to a wildlife area over twenty miles away from your home.  Call today!

Skunk Trapping In Bartlett - Skunk Damage

Skunks do not try to access your home like raccoons, squirrels and rodents.  These lovely creatures prefer burrows and dens under your home, but did you know that these burrows can invalidate your termite policy?

Skunks will also do a great deal of damage to your lawn and gardens.  Those long sharp claws can quickly dig up your expensive sod in search of tasty grubs, works and insects.  Skunks are omnivores which means they will eat both meat and plants.  These pretty things usually hunt for rats, lizards, mice, snakes, and other small animals, but they won’t turn down a bite or two of your fresh summer vegetables!

Skunk Removal In Bartlett TN - Mating Season

Skunk mating season begins in January and lasts until mid March.  During this time, the male skunks will search for females, sometimes traveling as far as five miles away.  That’s quite a distance for those short, stumpy little legs.  And even when they find their girl, they may receive a huge shock.  If his lady love is not interested, she will spray Mr. Romeo skunk right in the face!  How rude!
 
Fortunately, skunk mating season is only a couple of months long, and if the mating is successful the female will give birth in the spring.  She will raise the babies on her own, and the male skunk will return to his bachelor life until next season.

Skunk Trapping In Bartlett TN - That Terrible Smell!

Did you know that skunks will actually give a couple of warnings before spraying?  When a skunk does spray, it takes up to ten days for him to renew his supply of musk.  Because these stinky fellows would rather save their spray for life or death situations, they will give a couple of warnings first.
 The first warning is the classic lifting of the tail and a stern growl.  If that doesn’t work, the skunk will stamp his two front feet on the ground at the same time.  These beautiful animals are trying to scare you away but its actually rather cute to watch, especially when they’re babies! 
 
After sufficient warnings, a skunk will snap its rear around and nail its target with the terrible scent they are famous for.  Skunks can spray up to ten feet away, and their aim is deadly.
Respect the stomp!
