Skunk Control in Brockville
One of our clients in Brockville had the unlucky experience of coming across a skunk on their property. Luckily the client did not get sprayed by the skunk! He called Greenshield Pest Control and our technicians arrived. They found that the skunk was entering underneath the shed. They provided the necessary treatment which involves digging a trench and sealing the area off, and using a one-way door system to allow to skunk to exit. They also made sure that there were no babies hiding underneath the shed. After a few days, the skunk left the shed and the client was relieved to be skunk free.
How do Skunks Invade Your Property
Skunks are found all across Ontario. Although they are not true hibernators, they do become dormant for extended periods of time during the winter months. They are ground dwellers and tend to burrow holes in the ground to make their nests. Common areas where they will invade on your property are underneath decks, sheds, and porches.
Skunks can cause damages to homes. They will chew and burrow through wood and siding to gain access to your property. They might also rummage through garbage and dig into lawns and gardens while searching for food. They can also pose a threat to your domestic animals, causing temporary blindness with their spray, which can also be very hard to clean off.
