Everyone knows that skunks really stink—a skunk can blast its foul-smelling defensive spray up to 10 feet! The spray will make a victim uncomfortable, but it is not known to cause any serious damage. Do not attempt to capture skunks yourself! Keep children and pets at a safe distance whenever skunks are found and call Advanced Wildlife Removal at 714.862.9687 for expert handling. In California, the striped skunk is the most common species found near residences. They are most active from dusk to dawn; however, they may sometimes be seen during the daytime. Skunks eat almost anything–including garbage, fruits and berries, insects, snakes, rodents, and vegetation.
Experienced skunks often return to familiar dens during breeding season; so, prompt attention to skunk infestations is critical. Skunks are often found below decks, porches and homes. They like to inhabit burrows that have been abandoned by other animals. Skunks may also hide in hollow logs, dense brush and below residential structures.
