DECKS

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.

skunks under shed

SHEDS

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.

PORCHES

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

Inspection

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 in Oakville 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?

The price for a typical skunk removal job starts at around $300 for the installation of the one way door. Prices for exclusion and trenching start at about $30 per linear foot. Prices include materials and labour. Keep in mind pricing may vary depending on size and difficulty of the dig.

What does Your Warranty Cover?

Our warranty covers labour and materials on the areas we perform work on. If an animal breaches our work during our warranty period we will return to rectify the situation at no additional cost to you. It is a comprehensive 2 year warranty.

Do You Trap Skunks?

Trapping and relocating skunks stresses and harms the animals and can have negative effects on local wildlife populations. We do not trap and relocate animals. We always advise against trapping.

How Does A One Way Door Work?

A one way door is a door that opens only from the inside. When we seal up a den we always place a one way door over the opening so that animals use the door to exit. Once out, the animals can’t get back in and as a result move on.

When Do Skunks Have Babies?

Skunks have babies during the Spring months. Any wildlife prevention work has to take into account younger and potentially immobile animals. We take extra care to not disturb skunk babies during these times and work primarily during the Summer months when animals are all grown up.

Do You Only Provide Services for Skunks?

The same service we provide for skunks can be applied for raccoons and other burrowing animals such as rats. The technique is the same but some aspects change, such as the size and type of the one way doors. Pricing is similar.
