How to Handle a Skunk Until Our Team Arrives
Skunks are known for carrying a variety of illnesses that can be transmitted to humans or pets through bites or contact, so it’s important to keep your family and pets well away from skunks or their suspected nests until our team is able to remove them. In addition to rabies, skunks have been known to carry leptospirosis, canine distemper and hepatitis, and intestinal roundworm.
If you suspect a skunk has made its nest in your home or on your property, it’s best to leave the property until we’re able to remove the skunk. If the skunk is outside and has no way into your house, simply stay far away from it and do not try to capture or trap it. Make a note of where the skunk was last or most commonly seen and tell our skunk removal experts when they arrive. We’ll safely and humanely trap the skunk and then relocate it to a less populated area.
