Skunks belong to the weasel family, move slowly and have jet black fur with white stripes or spots running down their back. They are approximately the size of a domestic cat. Skunks are best known for emitting a pungent odor that travels great distances to ward off potential predators. The foul odor is an irritant to eyes and other senses. Skunks are omnivorous and nocturnal mammals. They eat anything from garbage and pet food to rodents, insects, grubs, earthworms, snakes and amphibians. Skunks should only be removed by a Houston area professional skunk control specialist.

They will dig in your landscaped yard, around your home or business, and under structures. Skunks are alert and smart animals. They can be difficult to trap. Don’t allow those Houston TX skunks to take over your yard or building. Give The Critter Team a call and schedule a skunk control appointment. Skunks use their stout legs and strong five-toed feet to dig in gardens and under buildings. They have a tendency to wander into yards and buildings to search for food and dens. They carry diseases, including rabies, distemper, and tularemia, capable of harming both people and pets. Skunks also carry ticks, fleas, mites, tapeworms and other disease-causing parasites. Skunks possess one of the most feared defense mechanisms ever devised. They can direct their spray up to 20 feet away, inflicting nausea, intense pain, and even temporary blindness.
Skunk Habitat Modification
When restricted to their natural habitat, skunks play an important role in nature by controlling insect populations. Skunks present a number of significant problems, however, when they take up residence in homes or commercial establishments. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways to reduce the chance that a skunk will be attracted to your home or business. For example, garbage cans should be secured, pet food eliminated from outdoor areas, the amount of moisture in areas near buildings limited and areas such as porches and sheds sealed. It’s also a good idea to keep pets indoors at night to prevent smelly encounters with skunks.
