Our Skunk Removal Services – The BWS Advantage
Skunk removal can be a stinky business, if you know what I mean. BWS solves skunk problems when skunks have taken harborage under sheds, decks, patios, and other areas around a property. The first step in the skunk removal process will involve setting up cage traps in the most traveled areas the skunk are using. Many times when a skunk is under a shed or patio they would have dug an entry hole to access underneath the structure. When this happens we can utilize a positive-set, where the cage trap will go directly over the hole. When the skunk(s) exit they will have no other place to go besides into the trap. There is always concern of a skunk spraying after it is caged, which isn’t usually a problem for our experienced technicians. When the cage trap is covered, the skunk will feel much calmer and will not be likely to spray. That being said, younger skunks are much less predictable and an incident once in a while is inevitable. Luckily we have a way to get rid of the scent when skunks spray! We use our disinfectant machine when a skunk has sprayed underneath a house causing the smell the permeate into living quarters. Within 24 hours the smell will slowly dissipate bringing the home back to its normal state. No matter your skunk situation, call BWS today for skunk removal and trapping services in Columbus, Ohio and surrounding areas.
Trenching Decks & Patios To Keep Skunks Out For Good!
Residential property owners have always been prone to skunks and other critter infestations. The most common areas these animals choose to inhabit is under your deck, shed, or patio. BWS has the proper knowledge in resolving these conflicts once and for all, and the best measure you can take to keep the critters from invading underneath your deck, shed, or patio is to have a trenching job done. This process involves digging a trench around the area 6-12 inches deep and then securing wire to the edges of the structure. After the wire is installed the trench is then buried. Trenching provides a barrier between the outside world and the underside of your deck, shed, or patio. BWS can offer this service to homeowners in Columbus, OH. Trenching comes with a 100% guarantee!
DIY Skunk Trapping Tips
Skunks are attracted to almost everything when it comes to food. They share that similarity with raccoons, so you can pretty much use anything you have on hand for bait. Some skunks can be cage shy, meaning they will not enter a cage trap after a previous experience being caught. We have our own methods and bait for skunk removal in Columbus, OH that works even better than the example we are about to give, but we can’t give all our secrets away! That being said, the original recipe for the crispy KFC chicken is the skunks lover for life. We do not use this method for trapping skunks in our business, this is just advice we give to homeowners who want to do it themselves. What we use for bait is even better, but we can’t give away all our secrets, or people might put us out of business! Homeowners should keep in mind, although this bait will attract skunks, it will also attract a good number of other critters.
Once the homeowner has caught the skunk, now comes the question of what to do with it. Some people will illegally release skunks in a nearby park or woodlands, but that is lawful, and your efforts to save money in the first place by trapping the skunks on your own is pointless; after you get hit with the $600 fine from the game warden for releasing a nuisance animal in which state law requires euthanization for once it’s taken off the property. Since skunks are carriers of many diseases including rabies, releasing skunks in a new area will cause more harm than good because they can spread disease to the local population of animals. Legally the skunk must be euthanized after being caught, it’s actually a more humane thing to do than releasing it, because that animal will likely die a suffering death in an enviornment it has no experience in.
