  • We Can Solve It!
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.

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 Adams 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 Westminster animal control for wildlife issues.

Westminster Wildlife Removal Tip: What size hole can a skunk fit through?

A skunk is a non-aggressive and beneficial creature that is known for its self-defense. If you ever notice a faint smell coming from a skunk, it may be living around the yard or home. Now, what is the size hole that a skunk can fit through?

4-6 Inch Diameter Hole

You will need to take a look at a 4-6 inch diameter hole next to the woodpiles or buildings. Or, if possible, look through a den right below a deck or porch. Remember that a skunk is an omnivorous animal. It primarily eats grubs, eggs, insects, small vertebrates like mice and human garbage. It also basically adapt well to the environments of people. It also chooses to live happily under patios, decks, sheds and porches. It is sometimes found in the rock piles or wood, hollow logs or even abandoned burrows. The young is also usually born in the months of May and June. Then, it remains for 2 months before it is accompanied by its mother. If there is no young around, a skunk is believed to be a solitary animal. It is also a nocturnal animal. It can also stay active the entire year.

Back Away Quietly and Slowly

If ever you have noticed a skunk, you need to back away quietly and slowly. You need to avoid from getting sprayed on. It will not likely to notice you. That is why you need to stay away from it. It is also preyed upon by owls. That is why you need to be extra careful in not frightening it. There are many signs that it will spray you on like stomping the ground using its front feet. It will also shake its tail and will fluff its fur.


In order that you discourage it from moving in, it will be essential blocking or screening the entry points to spaces found right below the buildings and homes. You will need to make use of a material extending eight to ten inches below the ground. That is because a skunk is a good burrower. You also need to fill the openings right below the concrete structures.

Humane Techniques to Try Out On

There are also a lot of humane techniques that you may consider in mind when it already has taken up its residence under your shed or porch. Place some grass or loose straw in the front of the opening towards the den. Place the items along with the human scent. You will also need to turn your flashlight off and turn the radio on at a regular interval. This way, the mother will be able to feel safe while re-entering the den and retrieving its young.
