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.

Solid or precast steps can provide excellent shelter for skunks. Animals often dig under concrete steps and set up their den deep below the surface.

Professional Skunk Removal Service
in Markham

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.


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.

Skunk Removal FAQ

How Much Does Skunk Removal Cost in Markham?

Depending on the details of the situation, skunk removal in Markham 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 involved in the exclusion performed. If an animal breaches our work within the warranty period, a technician will come back and fix the problem at no additional cost. This is a comprehensive warranty.  

Do You Trap Skunks?

We do not trap skunks because it can harm them. Leaving an animal in the trap for too long could starve the animal and relocating it would cause disorientation. Instead, we use the one-way door, which evicts the animals safely.

How Does A One Way Door Work?

The one-way door is installed directly onto the entrance of the animal’s den. When the skunk wants to leave, it simply pushes on the door to get out. Because the door only swings outward, the skunk cannot get back inside. To ensure that it does not dig around the door, we recommend having the surrounding area excluded with mesh.

When Do Skunks Have Babies?

Skunks in Ontario usually have their babies between May and June. Their babies, also known as kits, stay in the den for about 8 weeks. After that, they are old enough to join their mother on trips outside the den. Our technicians wait until skunk baby season is over before performing exclusion so that we do not want to disturb the animals. 

Do You Only Provide Services for Skunks?

We provide services for skunks, raccoons, rats, and other wildlife in which we can use the one-way door. The technique is the same and our pest-proofing works against all wildlife. If another species is identified at the time of inspection, we can help you out.
