  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Georgia'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 Georgia'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 Coweta 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 Newnan animal control for wildlife issues.

Newnan Wildlife Removal Tip: Home Remedies to Keep Away Skunks and Get Rid of Them

Reasons to Keep Skunks Away

Their favorite food is insects, so they dig holes in lawns in order to reach their food. Just one night of eating can significantly damage a large area of a lawn. Skunks carry diseases that can be harmful to pets and humans. They are destructive to structures such as decks, porches or even concrete slabs. Skunks have also been known to damage wiring while burrowing under buildings. They stink! The odor is difficult to eradicate.

Practical Steps to Keep Away Skunks

Eliminate food sources by emptying bird feeders, tightly cover garbage cans, keep pet food in sealed containers, etc. Eliminate any openings under your home that skunks might find inviting. Add bright light. Motion detector lights work well also. Nocturnal animals prefer the dark. Place chocolate bars in your yard. Skunks get sick from eating chocolate because they can't digest the chemicals found in chocolate. One occurrence of getting sick on the chocolate will prevent them from coming back for more.

Home Remedies to Get Rid of Skunks

Urine of pets or predators such as coyotes can be sprinkled near the space occupied by skunks. Urine must be applied every day and can be washed away by rain. The urine method must be used in conjunction with other steps such as erecting a fence to prevent skunks from getting in. Ammonia is a popular home remedy to use as a skunk repellant. Use of ammonia or urine is based on the fact that skunks have an extremely sensitive sense of smell. Just like the urine, ammonia has to be reapplied often and can be washed away by rain. Sprinkling cayenne pepper where the skunk goes in and out of the den will get rid of the skunk. However; the cayenne pepper will have to be reapplied after it rains, and precautions need to be taken to keep the skunk from coming back. Here is a recipe for a hot pepper spray with cayenne pepper that will remove skunks.

o 1 yellow onion, chopped
o 1 jalapeņo pepper, chopped
o 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
o 2 quarts water
o Boil the onion, jalapeno pepper and cayenne pepper in the water for 20 minutes. Strain with cheesecloth and pour into a spray bottle. Spray the area of the skunk traffic. Reapply every 3 to 5 days and after a rain.

Take all steps necessary to prevent sharing your home with skunks!
