Residents in the Kansas City area are very aware of the skunk's method of defense, most people will not approach skunks for this reason. Your pets, however, will be curious if they see these medium-sized critters in their immediate vicinity. Skunk spray can temporarily blind humans and pets, and skunks can tear up landscapes, so we recommend you don't approach them if you are not well-trained. If you suspect you have a skunk problem, don't attempt to handle them by yourself. Call Critter Control of Kansas City today at (913) 912-8985 or contact us HERE to schedule your skunk removal inspection.
Keeping Skunks Away
Skunks are found most frequently visiting homes that have a lot of vegetation or bugs. Even though they prefer wooded areas they can find shelter somewhere on your property. When you come across a skunk it is mostly in areas like your patio or deck, these are the areas that they usually migrate towards because they are able to hide there. Skunks are not picky eaters, often consuming mice, rats, vegetation, bugs, and even trash (just like raccoons do)! Critter Control of Kansas City professional technicians will remove skunks from your property and implement prevention techniques to keep them from coming back.
