Suspect a skunk invasion under your deck? You wouldn't be the first. Skunks are common in urban areas and are best known for their ability to secrete a liquid with a strong, foul odor. If you think a problem is afoot, it's high time to call the pros at 911 Wildlife!

Our Skunk Removal Program

Although skunks are less-than-desirable visitors around our Houston homes, they're not always the aggressive or dangerous invaders we believe them to be.

Skunks are omnivorous, eating both plant and animal material and changing their diet as the seasons change. They are also quite docile and benign, as their severe nearsightedness often gets them in trouble. A skunk's only defense is a noxious odor created by sulfuric acid, although they use this only on rare occasions and only as a last resort.

911 Wildlife believes people highly misunderstand skunks and offers a three-step prevention program that ensures the safety of you, your pets, and the skunks in question.

Here's what that looks like:

  1. We install a one-way door over the main entry (and seal any other openings). The animal can get out but not back in. 
  2. We only remove animals if they are stuck somewhere and cannot get out. If this is the case, our experts will be on the scene to help however they can.
  3. We build up your exclusion barrier by animal-proofing your home. We will seal all cracks, gaps, and crevices.

Call 911 Wildlife today to discuss permanent skunk removal services.

Frequently Asked Questions

Try to isolate the skunk in one room by closing all doors and erecting barriers (such as screens or boards) to gently funnel the skunk back out the way he came in. Cat doors pose a continual problem because skunks and other wildlife smell the cat food inside and can't resist. We recommend eliminating cat doors altogether and training your cats to become indoor cats; their lifespan will be 13 to 15 years compared to outdoor cats, who only live 2 to 5 years. In addition, outdoor cats attack hundreds of millions of birds every year and three times as many small mammals. If you absolutely cannot keep your cat indoors, resolve to put out food only during the middle of the day while nocturnal wild animals are sleeping. If you must have a cat door, either lock it at night (remember that skunks are generally nocturnal) or get magnetic doors that open when close to your cat's collar.

Skunks from the surrounding area will soon replace any you remove, and as long as there is a skunk habitat around your property, there will be wildlife to deal with.
