Why are There So Many Skunks?

Nuisance Wildlife Control | February 26, 2019

Why are There So Many Skunks

Spring is a great time for skunks and even though it is still technically winter, the mild winter is producing spring-like conditions. Skunks are wonderful at their job which is to eat insects and they are very fond of the big beetle grubs that live in soil. This is why you go out and find sods of grass overturned and small holes in your flower beds. There are other pests who make similar holes, but around this time of year, skunks are actively looking for grubs.

Another Skunk Attractant

Pet food makes an easy meal for a skunk and most wild animals will take the easiest way out when it comes to a meal. A good rule of thumb is to feed your pets at specific times and then bring in uneaten food. This little tip helps to reduce the infestation of ants, cockroach, and silverfish, while diminishing the risk of contact with larger mammals such as a raccoon or skunk. Plus, when there is no food, there are fewer wasps. All of that from just controlling the pet food.

What Should You Do About Skunks

The best way to avoid skunks is to make sure that there is no food around for them to eat. They will trot off looking for food in other places. If you have a skunk that routinely visits, then reach out to our team. We can trap and relocate so that they are not a pest in your yard.
