Skunk Capture & Removal
We are the experts!
The skunk is about the size of a big cat, except that its body widens at the back. Their tail is long and full. Their head, eyes and ears are small. They have piercing sight.
Their canine and carnivorous teeth are very sharp. Their legs have five claws, not retractable. Their fur is long, black and shiny.
A small white band separates Their face in two. Another band goes from the top of the head and divides in two at shoulder height to go to each side to the back of his body. The skunk moults twice a year, in spring and in the fall.
The skunk rarely burrows into a burrow, taking advantage of an old groundhog burrow or a fox burrow.
The skunk is omnivorous. They eat everything, insects, rodents like mice, field mice, moles and even frogs. It also feeds on eggs, chicks, crayfish and litter. They’re good swimmers.
The male is polygamous, by necessity, since the female hunts him soon after the mating. After a 66-day gestation, she usually gives birth to 5 or 6 pups. Newborn babies are blind and deaf, but after 3 weeks, their eyes open, but it is only at their 8th week that their smelly liquid will be effective for their defense.
The skunk is heavy and moves slowly. When she thinks herself in danger, the skunk turns her back and throws two jets of liquid that burns her eyes. The jet can reach a distance of 4-5 meters. The nauseating smell of this means of protection is very effective.
