Skunk Removal In Cordova TN

Skunk Trapping In Cordova TN - Skunk Removal

Cordova is full of parks and beautiful wooded areas but its also full of wildlife, including skunks!

These beautiful creatures are gentle, peaceful animals who just want to left alone.  Skunks rarely spray unless provoked or attacked.  Unfortunately, when skunks and humans share the same space, eventually someone is going to get sprayed.

At Apex Wildlife Control, our technicians are skilled in trapping and removing these stinky little fellows to a wildlife area over twenty miles away from your home so they will not find their way back.  We release these lovely creatures into a spot with ample food, water and shelter where they can live out their best skunk lives, far away from your property.

Skunk Trapping In Cordova TN - Skunk Damage

Yes, little skunk.  You are very pretty and some may find your downright adorable. But you sure can do a lot of damage to our expensive landscaping and vegetable gardens!
 
Skunks are omnivores, which means they will eat meat and plants.  Those long sharp claws can quickly dig through sod in search of tasty grubs, worms and insects.  Skunks usually hunt for rats, mice, lizards, snakes and eggs, but they won’t turn down a bite of your fresh summer vegetables.  And just like raccoons and opossums, skunks will tip over your trash can in the middle of the night looking for a late night snack!

Skunk Removal In Cordova TN - Baby Skunks

Skunks will mate from January through the middle of March, and in the spring the mother skunk will give birth to anywhere from two to five babies.  Baby skunks are called kittens, and are born blind and hairless but their skunk markings will become visible in just a few days.  Around six weeks, these little cuties will start toddling after their mother when she goes out in search of food.  The mother will begin teaching her babies how to scavenge for food and look out for dangers.  These babies will be mature enough to be on their own by the time fall arrives.

Baby skunks can spray, but thankfully their spray is not as powerful as an adult.  They do have a hard time controlling their spray, so if you have some baby skunks around, your nose will definitely be the first to know!

Skunk Trapping In Cordova TN - That Terrible Smell!

Believe it or not, skunks do not actually want to spray you.  When a skunk sprays, it takes up to ten days to renew his supply of musk.  During this time, the skunk is without its defenses.  So because skunks would prefer to save their spray for life or death situations, they will give your a couple of warnings first.
 
The first warning is the lifted tail, direct stare and a growl.  When that doesn’t work, the skunk will rear up and stomp his short little front legs into the ground.  Yes, its completely adorable but he really does mean business.  If you ignore these two warnings and continue to invade his space, you will not like what come next.  Respect the stomp!

 

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

opossums, raccoons, armadillos and much more.
