Skunk Removal in Columbia

Most people consider the striped skunk to be a disgusting animal and a pest to our South Carolina neighborhoods and communities. This reputation often stems from the repulsive smell that typically accompanies a skunk sitting. The skunk is well aware of its reputation and uses it as a defense mechanism.

Skunk Trapping Columbia

Skunks rarely ever retreat from a potential threat. Instead, a skunk will raise his bushy tail, lower his head and assume an aiming position. Firing is the last resort, but the skunk will do what he feels he needs to when threatened. The annoyance is now a victim of two streams of yellow fluid secreted from a double-barreled nozzle in the skunk’s anal tract. The skunk has the ability to aim accurately up to ten feet, shooting five to six squirts at the intruder. A shot in the eye by this yellow fluid will most likely result in temporary blindness. Even without a direct hit, the smell will cause gagging, nausea, and extreme discomfort.

There is no need for alarm after the occasional skunk sightings around South Carolina neighborhoods and communities. While that is the case, skunks taking up residence around your home or business is a sign that you should call AAAC Wildlife Removal of South Carolina’s skunk removal specialists. We will resolve your nuisance skunk problem as soon as possible.

Any landowners and tenants who have a skunk causing damage on their property maintain the right to live-trap a skunk. But it is important to know that this comes with the risk of being sprayed by the skunk, especially when using a commercially purchased cage trap. At AAAC Wildlife Removal of South Carolina, we use specialized traps for skunks and we are even trained to transfer skunks to our special skunk traps.

If you have a skunk problem or if you need assistance in removing a skunk you have already caught, call AAAC Wildlife Removal of South Carolina at 803-525-1226.
