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.
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!
We also perform wildlife trapping in Cordova TN for rats, mice, squirrels, moles,
opossums, raccoons, armadillos and much more.
So if you have some little visitors you need evicted from your home or property,
give Apex Wildlife Control a call today.
We are happy to help!
