Many of Florida'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 Florida'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 Collier county animal services for assistance.

Marco Island Wildlife Removal Tip: How to get rid of skunks without killing them

There are many different kinds of animals that would come onto your property that you would not give a second thought to using some form of poison or other legal means to terminate its life. Animals such as raccoons, possums, and squirrels are nothing more than nuisance creatures, and you may say good riddance to them. There's really no reason why you wouldn't want to take an aggressive action and getting rid of them.

However, a skunk is an entirely different story. While you may not want them around your property and don't really care if the animal dies, there are some horrific consequences whenever this creature passes on. The first thing that the skunk does when it dies is release the anal glands that contain it spray, meaning the spray is released across your property leaving it smelling like an ungodly disaster for weeks. What you really need to know is how to get rid of skunks without killing them.

The first thing to do is to take measures that will keep the animal away. This starts by ensuring that there are no sources of food available that will draw the skunk onto your property. An open garbage can, a pet's dish, or some other source of food can quickly become means that the animal will use to sustain itself. If you deny it sources of food this way, you are ensuring that there is less of a reason for it to come onto your property.

Fences can also be extremely efficient techniques and helping to keep a skunk off of your land. Make sure when you build the fence that it is at least 12 inches below the surface and buried in, denying the skunk the ability to dig its way underneath your structure. Skunks have extremely sharp front paws that are exceptional for digging, so you need to deny it that ability to do so.

You also want to keep in mind that skunks are nocturnal creatures, meaning that they come out at night time to hunt. This is where you can use that tendency to your advantage. What you want to do is scare away the skunk, should it come onto your property, without it attacking you or your pet with it spray.

To accommodate this, the use of a motion sensor attached to a sprinkler system can be a highly effective tool to use. When the skunk comes near the motion sensor, it activates it immediately. This causes the sprinkler system to come on, spraying the skunk and startling it so that it will run away. It doesn't have a predatory animal to be fearful of, so it will not spray its up noxious liquid at anything because there is nothing but water to startling.

This can be one of the very best measures employed, because it can be highly effective in keeping the skunk from coming onto your property while not scaring it to the point of attack. Take these kinds of precautions and your problem will be resolved quickly.
