Skunks just like raccoons often dig under sheds to find protection from the elements. You might look under the deck and not see the den entrance, but the burrow is there.

Sheds offer the best protection to skunks. Often sitting on a concrete slab, the shed structure acts like a fortress above their bunker deep underground.

Our work gets burried under ground and is not visible.


Once we find the area skunks are using as a den, we measure and verify the exact number of feet we will need to exclude. We also verify that no babies are present and that all animals are mobile and can move on their own.

Trenching & Meshing

With your permission - we get to work. We will dig about 15-20 inches deep around the structure and attach a steel mesh barrier underground. This way skunks will not be able to dig back under the deck or shed once they vacate.

One Way Door

Skunks vacate through our one-way door. This door can be attached to allow any animals that are hiding under the structure to exit. Once the animals are out, we return and seal things up permanently.

We make sure There are no immobile babies

Do Not Block Entry Points

There might be skunk babies living in the den. By blocking entry points to the den, you are potentially hurting the animals inside. Our services are performed at times of year that potential skunk babies are totally grown up and mobile to minimize any possibility that animals are stressed or hurt. Hire us for professional and humane skunk removal Hamilton services.

The Problem With Skunks

When skunks become alarmed or threatened by a person or animal they spray as a defensive weapon. Skunk spray can be long lasting and overpowering.

Skunk Removal FAQ

How Much Does Skunk Removal Cost?

Depending on the details of the situation, skunk removal usually costs about $300. This includes the cost of labour and the installation of the one-way door. Prices for exclusion start at $30 per foot but varies on the size and difficulty of the job.

What does Your Warranty Cover?

Our warranty covers the labour and materials used to exclude the area. If a wild animal breaks through our work within the warranty period, we will return and fix the problem at no additional cost.

Do You Trap Skunks?

Trapping and relocating skunk’s risks harming the animals, so we choose to use the one-way door instead. In Ontario, it is illegal to relocate skunks further than a kilometer away. Trapping also fails to prevent future invasions. Using the one-way door evicts the animals safely and forces them to relocate within the territory they know well. 

How Does A One Way Door Work?

The one-way door only swings outward, so it lets the animals out of their dens but prevents them from coming back. When a skunk wants to leave its den to find food, it simply pushes on the door to get out. When it tries to come back in, the door remains shut and the animal finds another place to live.

When Do Skunks Have Babies?

We also provide services for raccoons and other burrowing animals in which we can apply the one-way door. The technique is the same and our exclusion keeps all animals out. Our technicians are trained in all forms of wildlife removal and would be happy to help you with your situation.

Do You Only Provide Services for Skunks?

The one-way door only swings outward, so it lets the animals out of their dens but prevents them from coming back. When a skunk wants to leave its den to find food, it simply pushes on the door to get out. When it tries to come back in, the door remains shut and the animal finds another place to live.
