What are skunks?
Along with raccoons, skunks are easily recognized wildlife in our region. Varying in size, skunks are black with short legs and have a wide white stripe that runs down their back and along the top of their plumed tail. They also have long front claws suitable for digging.
Why do I have skunks?
You probably have a skunk looking for food or shelter. This pest tends to dig dens under foundations, porches, sheds or decks. They may also move into crawl spaces, sheds and garages.
Are they dangerous?
The noxious odor released by defensive spraying makes skunks a particularly unpleasant nuisance pest. Skunks are also capable of cause extensive damage to lawns and gardens with the destructive digging.

Skunks are hard to evict and are best left to the NJ animal control professionals. A ChemTec pest professional will design a customized animal control program that fits the specific needs of your property, with the goal of eliminating all skunk activity.
