Professional, efficient skunk control.

Skunks have a bad rep, but they’re actually very intelligent, loving animals. Although they can den in unacceptable places, they are uniformly distributed throughout the region and do not cause problems often. When it comes to skunk control, removal, and deterrence, Humane Solutions offers the most effective & humane methods in the industry.

Structural Removal

Skunks will den under steps, sheds, decks, wood piles etc, and it’s only when your backyard also becomes theirs when problems typically occur. In this circumstance we will identify the den site, affix a one-way door to the main access, and use trenching methods to prevent any further digging. This service allows every skunk to leave on their own accord under the cover of night, and as they have lost the resource they will head to a backup site, effectively self-relocating. After a few days we come pull the door and seal up.

Exterior Control

The reality is that there are LOTS of skunks around, you don’t notice them because they avoid contact with people and pets, they don’t want to spray you. If you have a couple of run-ins with a neighborhood skunk, try to adjust your behavior to avoid it. Relocating is only harmful to the existing skunk, and creates a niche for another skunk to replace it. That methodology is not sustainable.

If property damage is the concern, there are various exclusion and deterrence strategies that can humanely and effectively manage your skunk problem.

Skunks give ample warning before they spray. Look for signs such as stamping their front feet, raising their tail, hissing, short forward charges and twisting their rear towards you.

Humane Solutions did a wonderful job! Service was prompt and the workers were very diligent in their work and neat. It’s not often that a company does as it advertises .I highly recommend them. And there really is no reason to shop around…they are that good and pricing is fair!
