  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Alabama's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Alabama's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Russell county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Phenix City animal control for wildlife issues.

Phenix City Wildlife Removal Tip: DO SKUNKS JUMP?

The animals which jump generally do so for finding food or for saving themselves from hunters. Skunks are not good jumpers and it is believed that they find their food by digging the lawn and because of their pungent smell are not attacked by hunters! Rather everyone stays away from them as their foul scent can even cause temporary blindness! Hence, it is believed that the ability of jumping to find food sources higher in the trees is less in skunk. But few skunks enter the house through open windows and homeowners also keep wooden planks to allow them to get out of the home by jumping via those planks.

The physical structure of Skunk

If you notice then the body structure of the skunk is very much similar to the cat and for once you may assume that they are flexible and agile like cats but that is not the case. They have strong and sharp claws which they use for digging the lawns but don't use them for climbing. It is believed that skunks were never expected to do all these as they could find their food at earth level only. Also, their exceptional ability to release that scent always keep them safe from hunters.

If skunks can't jump, how is it helpful or unhelpful to homeowners?

Many homeowners are dealing with issues of skunks entering their premises. For those homeowners, who already have a skunk inside, their ability of not jumping doesn't help them much. This means that just by opening windows, skunks will not get out automatically. They would have to think of other means to get them out. Also, skunks are not good pets hence they can't even learn quickly.

On the other hand, because they can't jump, putting a fence in the lawn area of lower height will also work. This is because they won't jump and enter your premises but one thing which you have to be mindful is that the fence should be embedded deep in the earth as they are very good diggers! So your fence should be high for extra protection and deep into the soil as well for ultimate protection.

Do skunks jump?

So the correct answer to this would be that skunks are better at burrowing and stay close to the ground but can climb in exceptional circumstances. They are capable of doing it but they never do!

Dealing with Skunks

It is not so easy to deal with skunks and their unpleasant smell. If they are into your house, they will pollute your place with horrendous scent and if they are in your lawn area, they will dig your beautiful ground to the core! They are mild and docile and less aggressive but are not very friendly as they are not familiar with pet environment. If you have skunks at your home, you need to deal with them immediately before they setup their den at your residence. You can trap them live and relocate them or can call for professional help who can help in rescuing them without causing any harm!
