Skunks are the nastiest creatures you can have on your property and if you have even had them entering your home, we are sure you have had a terrifying experience. If you have experienced this and wish to avoid it in the future, or if you have skunks loitering around your property and are worried that they might enter your home too, here are a few tips to avoid such a situation.
A skunk will enter your home for two main reasons – food and shelter. If there is food available in plenty, whether it is insects or pet food, skunks will make your property their favorite haunt and of they are already used to your yard and peripheral area, they are sure to think of coming into your home too.
Of course, if they just come in and leave, it is a story you can put up with, but imagine if it senses danger and gives out that nasty odor! One of the vilest and most obstinate smells in the animal kingdom, if you do not treat this spray the right way, the stink could stay for weeks, making your home a terrible place to stay in.
It is therefore important to take every measure possible to keep skunks away from your home. However, if one has already sneaked in, it would be best not to confront it. If you have pets around, make sure you restrain them so they don’t end up confronting the intruder either.
Simply open every door and prod the animal to leave amicably, and once it gets out, lock every door and make you keep an eye on them hereon!
Hiring a skunk removal team is of course the best option, as this will prove to be a permanent solution to your skunk intrusion problem.
