While it’s an easy play on words the hard facts are that noticing a skunks spraying scent is a tell tale sign that you have a skunk nesting on your property. Favorite hiding spots are usually under a porch, house or garage. While the common skunk seems or looks harmless they in fact are very dangerous. Not only will they spray the foul defense smell on you, or your pets, but skunks have very sharp teeth and claws and will most definitely attack if they feel at all threatened. This is just one good reason to use a professional for skunk removal in Dallas TX neighborhoods.
Skunks are omnivorous animals which means they feed on both animals and plants. So skunks finding a food supply in or around your home are generally very easy. They routinely invade garbage cans or will feed on anything from bird feeders droppings to pet food left outdoors. It’s extremely easy for these invasive creatures to chew through plastic garbage cans to reach the food they are after inside. Skunks are extremely destructive animals and what is not widely known is that the skunks stink glands that make them so famous actually spray up to a distance of 10 feet or 3 meters. This makes them very dangerous to pets and children, and if you have ever had to bath an animal to remove the smell you know that the pungent odor smells well after the bath process regardless of the method or products you use to alleviate the odor. It’s common for the smell to linger for at least a month. So don’t attempt to deal with the animal yourself, instead call on a skunk removal company in Dallas TX to take care of the problem for you.
