Common Issues Surrounding Skunks & Civet Cats

Skunks and civet cats can pose a range of challenges when they enter residential and urban areas. Understanding these common issues surrounding skunks and civets is essential for taking proactive measures to address their presence on your property. 

My professional skunk and civet cat control services are designed to provide you with a wildlife-free environment. Here are a few examples of common skunk and civet problems I have experience dealing with:

  • Outbuilding/chicken coop infestations
  • Living underneath a home or deck
  • Female skunks nesting and becoming territorial
  • Damage to outbuildings, doors, cat doors, etc.
  • Garden and lawn destruction
  • Classic skunk spray odor

Early Warning Signs You May Have Skunks

Identifying signs of skunk activity early can help you take proactive measures to address the issue. Keep an eye out for the following signs that a skunk is present on your property:

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

If you start noticing any of those skunk warning signs, don’t wait. Give me a call to assess your problem.

Skunk & Civet Cat Control Process

Caring for your property and ensuring a safe, skunk-free environment is at the heart of my practices. I always follow humane and effective methods to address skunk and civet cat concerns:

  • Thorough Inspection: I’ll start with a comprehensive inspection of your property to identify skunk or civet cat activity, potential entry points, and habitats. I assess the extent of the issue to tailor a skunk removal plan accordingly.
  • Safe Capture & Relocation: I use humane trapping and removal techniques to safely capture skunks and civet cats. I then relocate them to more suitable habitats, away from residential areas.
  • Prevention & Exclusion: Preventing these animals from returning is crucial. I implement proactive measures, including habitat modification and exclusion strategies to deter skunks and civet cats from reinfesting your property.
  • Education: I provide information and guidance on how to minimize future encounters with skunks and civet cats, promoting coexistence with wildlife.

Skunk & Civet Cat FAQs

Do you have questions about skunk and civet cat removal or exclusion in the Portland-Vancouver Metro area? Look no further. Read through these skunk and civet control FAQs, and if you have further questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Skunks are known for their ability to reproduce relatively quickly. A female skunk can have a litter of up to 18 (this was the largest recorded litter for the species) but it’s not uncommon to find litters of 10 offspring. This means that one skunk can turn into 20 skunks rather quickly.

A common misconception about skunks is that they will emit an odor if they are around humans at all. This is untrue, a skunk will only spray if it feels threatened, and if the skunk is perfectly content in its environment it will have no need to spray.

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