Skunks are widely known for their cute faces and nasty odor that follows. Skunks have glands which when felt threatened; they spray a fowl smelling odor at the aggressive animal to protect themselves.
Since they are mostly nocturnal, people do not know they are having issues until they wake up to a nasty odor in their home. Things to watch out for are dug out holes around the foundation leading into the crawlspace.
If you have unwanted pests or animal infestations on your property, the best course of action is to consult a professional as quickly as possible. Simply removing the animal or insects from your property won’t necessarily be enough; depending on the type of infestation you have, you could wind up with a repeat down the line. You might also create a dangerous situation for yourself or your family if you go about critter control or removing unwanted skunks the wrong way.
