Many of Colorado'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 Colorado's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Arvada Wildlife Removal Tip: Skunk Burrow Identification - How to Spot a Skunk Hole

In most rural areas and woodlands, you will usually notice a skunk that is digging a burrow under a hollow log, rock pile and culverts. If it will have to be removed around the neighborhoods, it will later on cause problems like tunneling under the sheds, concrete foundations, decks and buildings.

Why a Skunk Dig into the Ground?

A skunk usually digs into the ground in order for it to build its home. But, sometimes, it takes over the dens of other animals. The burrow is used for raising young, resting and hiding from other animals/predators. This is consisted of a lot of entrances and chambers that will provide a lot of room including a quick escape. The holes that are surrounded by the excavated dirt including a musky and strong odor will become a skunk borrow.

Other Reasons Why a Skunk Dig Holes

There are many reasons as to why a skunk digs holes. This is also primarily because of finding food and building a den. A skunk is an omnivorous animal that has its wide-ranging diet including small amphibians, mice, bird eggs, garbage and fish. And, they usually prefer it eating insects.

In the early fall and late summer season, a skunk that is in search of beetle leaves, worms and grubs will dig a cone-shaped hole that can range from one to three inches in diameter. On the part of property owners, they need to contact a wild animal and wildlife animal removal expert prior to this matter. Or, if possible, a pest control specialist will have to be contacted.

Problems that a Skunk May Bring

A skunk has its sharp front claws that for digging holes. If the skunk is found in the sub-urban and urban settings, it will burrow under the residential structures like porches, slabs, and decks. This is known to bring structural damage over a period of time. This could also bring damages to gardens, golf courses and lawns. This is because it digs for an insect grub found in the soil.

Removal and Control

In order to avoid a skunk from continuously burrowing in the lawns, it will help to remove its den sites. There are overgrown grasses that need to be mowed. In addition to that, there are brush, wood piles and rocks that need to be removed. Screening or fencing the areas under sheds, porches and decks will help deter them.
