Common Skunk Problems

Skunks may be cute and seem friendly, but they can still pose a threat to homeowners. Problems include:

  • Scavenging for food in city and country areas
  • Secreting their stench
  • Ripping up landscapes to find food, which damages flower bulbs and other plants

Are Skunks Really Important to Get Rid of?

Skunk spray can blind whoever it hits, especially at a short distance, so it is very important to deal with skunks as soon as the problem arises. Skunks can damage landscapes and cause costly damage, so call Wildlife X Team® at (817) 431-3007 today for help with the skunk removal process! 

More About Skunks

  • Skunks (also known as polecats) are most commonly known for their ability to secrete a foul, strong-smelling odor from their rear end when they feel threatened.
  • The majority of the 11 known species of skunk live in North and South America. While the color of skunks can vary from black and white to cream or even brown, all skunks have stripes! In addition, all baby skunks are born with stripe markings.
  • On average, skunks are between 40 and 70cm in length and weigh about the same as a domestic cat. The skunk's diet consists of insects, small birds, and mammals. Skunks also commonly eat berries, roots, grasses, and fungi in order to supplement their diet.
  • Baby skunks are born blind and completely toothless, with the eyes of the baby skunk not opening until the skunk is a few weeks old. The baby skunks are also unable to use their defensive spray until they are a couple of weeks old. The skunk's spraying ability develops just before its eyes open.
  • Skunks are generally solitary animals and only really come together to breed. In colder regions, however, skunks have been known to inhabit communal burrows in order to try to keep each other warm. Most skunks hide in burrows during the day which the skunk digs out with its long front claws.
  • Skunks have excellent smell and hearing, skunks are known to have very poor vision and can only see objects that are right in front of them. With the introduction of cars, numerous skunks have been killed on the roads as the skunks can not see the cars coming towards them until it is too late.
  • Female skunks usually give birth to their babies in the hotter month of May after a gestation period of a couple of months. The female skunk digs out a burrow in which to give birth to her skunk babies (kits) and the baby skunks will usually stay with their mother until they are about a year old and are old enough to mate themselves.
  • Certain breeds of skunk will send a warning if they feel threatened by doing a "dance" where they walk on their front paws and point their tails at the threat.
