Portland Skunk Removal & Trapping

Skunk Removal

We'll work to remove wildlife on the spot, set up humane live capture devices, or construct an eviction system. ABL Wildlife utilizes specially designed devices to mitigate the potential provocation that can lead to a skunk spraying. Our goal is to make your home and property safe for you, your family, and your pets.

Wildlife capture and skunk removal is best handled by trained and experienced professionals. Attempts to control or remove wildlife by homeowners is not only against state law in both Oregon and Washington, but it can also result in the transmission of diseases or injury to person and property.

Skunks can potentially carry numerous diseases including canine distemper, toxoplasmosis, leptospirosis and tularemia as well as playing host to parasites like ticks, lice, and fleas.

How do you know if you have skunks in your crawlspace, or yard? Sometimes their entry points can be challenging to find since they don't spray unless they are provoked.

Common Portland skunk issues include, but are not limited to:

Securing Crawlspace from Skunks
  • Outbuilding/Chicken Coop infestations
  • Skunks living underneath a home or deck
  • Female Skunks Nesting
  • Property Damage i.e. outbuildings, doors, cat doors, etc.
  • Garden and Lawn Destruction
  • Classic Skunk Spray Odor

But here are a few more specific indicators of a potential Skunk presence:

  1. 3" or larger holes in foundation vents (The vents around the bottom of the outside of your home)
  2. Open space underneath sheds, outbuildings, or chicken coops
  3. Holes dug under foundation
  4. Small holes in the lawn, missing tufts of grass, or strips of sod peeled back
  5. Pungent skunk odor

Are you still unsure where to find entry points or the species of animal causing damage? Don't worry about it! ABL Wildlife will identify wildlife species, access points, damage, and potential future entry points upon initial inspection.
