Rodent Removal & Animal Trapping



“Ew, what’s that smell?!” No doubt you have said this when passing a dead or sick skunk while driving down the road. Having a skunk near your home could make anyone miserable, with the additional paranoia that if you walk outside of your home, you could get sprayed. An occasional skunk problem you might encounter is digging in your yard for grubs. Your pet may just love to chase them whenever skunks come around, and they could get the occasional spray and bring that smell into your house, all over your carpet and furniture. Yuck! Luckily, One Way Pest Control offers Skunk Trapping, Removal, and Repellent services.

While skunks usually only spray as a defense mechanism when feeling threatened, they can get you before you even notice them. Skunks can accurately spray you with a sulfur compound called N-bulymercaptan from a surprising distance of 15 feet away. If this substance makes contact with your eyes, it can cause irritation and temporary blindness.

If you see a skunk begin to fluff its fur, stamp the ground, growl and spit, back away immediately; it feels threatened and is about to give you a shower. If by chance you (or a pet) have an encounter with a skunk, wash yourself immediately with carbolic soap and water, tomato juice or vinegar. Humans will understand to back away quicker than our pets, so upon a pet encounter, you may want to try this.
