Skunk Removal in Toronto

There is an increase in skunk removal Toronto calls and at Brilliex Pest Control, we respect all wild animals including skunks. We have developed advanced skunk removal techniques to get the animals away from your property as quickly as possible, while avoiding smelly incidents. We focus all our skunk removal methods on humane principles, and our skunk removal services are no exception. Every skunk control service job in Toronto, ON includes a comprehensive inspection of your property, removal of the animal and sealing the entry hole with heavy gauge screening. This humane skunk removal technique has been proven to be the most effective removal method and approved by the Ministry of Natural Resources. Skunks in Toronto don’t always burrow a hole, sometimes they wonder in to a backyard or fall in window wells by accident and get trapped. In such cases a one way door method can not be used to remove the nuisance skunk. Trapping becomes the only option. There are a lot of rules and regulations on trapping and removal of wild animals. For example a trapped skunk can not be relocated more than 1 km. This is why the one way door system and sealing entry points makes sense.

Where Skunks Nest?

Skunks feel right at home in urban areas like Toronto, North York, Richmond Hill, Markham. They love to eat garbage, compost, and even neglected pet food. These sources of good attract skunks to homes and businesses. Skunks are poor climbers so they tend to stay low to the ground. However, skunk are excellent diggers and often burrow under decks, sheds, and porches to build their nest. They typically hunt for food after dusk and rely on their strong sense of smell to find food. If you smell strong odour of skunk around your home, call us for an inspection of your property.

Skunk Control Methods

The best way of removing skunks from under the deck or shed is to use a one way door system. This device allows skunks to easily get out and not be able to get back in. First move is to dig the ground around where the entry hole is. We would install our heavy gauge screening like an L shape and bury it down. This stops the skunks from digging and getting back in. Then the one way door is installed over the screening, right on the entry hole. This technique will let all skunks leave and not be able to get back in. After the problem has been solved, we will come back to remove the one way door and seal the hole permanently. So what happens if the skunk has not burrowed any hole, anywhere? If the skunk is trapped in a window well, we have to physically snare it and remove it. If it is just roaming in your backyard, trapping would be the only option. Most animals don’t like the stress that is put upon them when trapped. This is sometimes enough to deter them from coming back.

Skunk Damage/Threats

Mother skunks are extremely protective of their young. If a mother feels her babies are threatened, she will defend her family by spraying a powerful odour at the aggressor. Skunks can spray up to 15 feet. If this spray gets in your eyes, it can burn and even cause temporary blindness. The foul odour is also a mark of territory. The horrible smell around your home will persist until the skunk is removed. People sometimes are exposed to rabies through an infected skunk. In cities such as Toronto GTA, exposure to disease increases dramatically. Besides rabies, skunks also carry other disease such as leptospirosis, roundworm, canine hepatitis and more.

Baby Skunk Removal

The most common method of skunk removal Toronto is to use a humane one way door system. This device allows the skunk to easily exit the den and not be able to get back in. During baby season (April-May) you can not use a one way door without checking for babies. They remain in the den until old enough to fend for themselves outside. Babies need to be removed physically and placed in an incubator (baby box) outside to be reunited with their mother at a later time. When evicted, a mother skunk will relocate her babies to a safer, already established, secondary den. This process will take a while as she will take one baby at a time and has to travel through the city streets to reach her destination. Only after the babies have been removed, a one way door should be installed to make sure the mother skunk comes out to relocate her babies. What if babies are not reachable? In this case you would have to wait unitl the babies become mobile (this could take a few months) then proceed with installing a skunk one way door. Need skunk removal service in Toronto? Let us solve your problem professionally without harming any skunks in the process.
