One of the most common nuisance animal calls that we receive is for skunk's under a deck, shed, or house. The main concern is the odor that comes from being sprayed by a skunk or the when a skunk sprays on your property the odor can carry into the house. If you think you have a skunk living on your property we recommend having the problem solved before a confrontation takes place. We have been handling skunk removal in Beaverton, OR for many years and can help prevent you, your family, and your pets from getting sprayed.
The reason that skunk's can commonly be found living under decks is because its a safe location to build a den. This helps protect the skunk's from coming in contact with other animals. It is never a good idea to seal up your deck without knowing that all animals, including skunks are removed. This can create a bigger problem and possible end up trapping the animals underneath. We are able to remove skunks under your deck and seal it up to make sure no other animals can get under.
Another common location for skunk's to build a den is underneath a shed on your property. For the same reason's as a deck it provides protection and a safe place to raise babies. Usually when you have a skunk under your shed you can find a hole that they have dug for an entrance. Many people are surprised by how small a hole that large skunk's use.
