Skunk Removal & Control

We remove skunks in Tower Lakes frequently but can honestly say we love skunks, they are cute, docile animals when dealt with correctly are surprisingly very smart with a reputation for being smarter and a better pet then a house cat. If it were legal in Illinois we might even have a few…however we would never want one living under our deck or stoop so we know just how you feel when you want to get rid of a pest skunk on your property. Believe it or not we have had several clients call the gas company or fire department before calling us for skunk trapping services because they thought the sulfur in the skunk essence was a gas leak. The sulfur in skunk spray is what temporarily blinds animals threatening the skunks life. We offer professional skunk odor removal for skunk spray that is just unbearable which is usually best done after skunk trapping is performed. There is a special process for skunk control that always starts with humane skunk trapping because nothing can be done effectively with a live skunk spraying. Unfortunately we do encounter dead skunks from poisoning or natural causes usually disease. When we have a dead skunk under a deck of concrete stoop we try and remove it as soon as possible as the smell will last for periods of 6+ months very strongly. This is best accomplished by digging till the carcass can be found and removed, a very long process. If you’re looking for professional skunk control to eradicate nuisance animals by humane trapping give us a call today for a phone consultation for skunk removal or skunk odor removal.

  • Spotting Evidence of Raccoon Infestations

Raccoons are wonderful little critters that are simply misunderstood. Yes they can be a nuisance to home and property owners, but that is not their fault; it is simply their nature! It is our own duty to keep raccoons away from our properties, rather than blaming them for trespassing when they do. Preventative maintenance is the best approach for avoiding raccoon problems on your property, but a little strategic initiative doesn't hurt either!

The traditional preventative maintenance methods include removing all food and water sources outside (i.e. bathhouses, pet bowls, squirrel feeders, etc.), taking the trash out on the morning of garbage pickup day, installing patio/driveway motion sensor lighting or sound machines, and much more. But for spring and summer, you can choose to simply plant some more plants! You see, certain plants repel raccoons because they do not like the taste, feel, or smell of them. Planting these plants can be a fun and effective way to keep raccoons out of your gardens and away from your landscaping. And best of all, it is a project the whole family can get involved in! Continue reading to learn which plants have this effect on raccoons and why!

Raccoons have very sensitive paws. For this reason, they avoid walking in areas that hurt their feet and handling items that hurt their paws. Prickly plants and foods are some of those areas and items. Raccoons do not like to walk on or touch prickly or thorny plants, like globe thistle, cucumbers, anything in the squash family, rose bushes, and more. Planting these items in your garden or around your home can keep raccoons away.
