Read this before hiring a Skunk Removal Expert in the Denver metro area!

It's that time of year again and Skunks are invading Decks, Porches, Patios and Crawlspaces looking for a place to have their young. This is a guide to hiring a professional for your skunk problem.
 

The skunk is found pretty much everywhere, especially the city, where food is abundant. Skunks will raid trash cans and often dine on dog and cat food as well as the backyard bird feeder.
 

My name is Jake and I have been solving Skunk problems in the Denver metro area for the past 10 years.  I am the current Vice President of the Colorado Wildlife Control Operators Association (CWCOA) . I have a working dog named Carlie who has become invaluably skilled at pulling dead skunks out from places a tech couldn't access.

In Feb, 2013 we were featured experts on Animal Planets hit television show  called "Infested". I would like to help the public with questions and common misconceptions in the Nuisance Wildlife industry surrounding Skunks. 







Here are some questions you should ask during the hiring process.

  1. Do you provide free estimates? (Most companies in the area do offer free estimates)
  2. Are you insured? (It is very easy to provide liability insurance documents for customers)
  3. Are you a member of any associations? If so, they should include CWCOA or NWCOA (these are our main trade associations)
  4. Do you primarily deal in wildlife? (Pest Control technicians sometimes lack the necessary skills needed to provide wildlife services)
  5. Do you charge a flat rate? Or do you charge per Skunk? Or per animal? Or per trip to the property? (Many times you will have many more than just one or two skunks or sometimes you might catch raccoons or cats or squirrels.... you get the idea. "Per this" or "Per that" is an open ended contract and a bad idea.You should know what it's going to cost before you hire someone.)


Skunk Facts
Adult skunks begin breeding in late February. They usually have one litter of up to ten babies, per year during May or early June.

Skunks are famous for their noxious spray that is produced by two internal glands called essence. The thick oily yellow liquid obtains its pungent smell from sulfur-based oils. Skunks spray only when they feel threatened and will hiss, growl and stamp their feet. This is a warning for potential victims to back off or be sprayed. If you should see a skunk exhibit these behaviors, slowly back away. They can spray a distance as far as 10 feet away
 
If you or a dog should be sprayed by a skunk, you can try a recipe consisting of 
  •  Hydrogen peroxide
  • Baking soda
  • Dish soap
Why does hydrogen peroxide work? The oxygen molecules in the soapy solution neutralize the skunk scent by bonding to those terrible thiols. By altering that chemical makeup, this stink-fighting antidote makes the smell quickly disappear.
