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

Benton Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Mothballs Or Ammonia Help Repel Skunks?

You may find skunks very innocent and cute with their first appearance, but in actual they are very dangerous creatures. They take very less time to destroy property with their messy habits. These animals are very harmful to pets and humans in the premises as they can spread lots of diseases. Once the build nests in the human habitat, they start destroying structures like plants, garden, pet food and attic of the house. One of the most common damage skunks cause to properties is in porch and shed areas where they often try to build dens to raise their babies.

Skunks are omnivorous creatures, so they can live on anything that is easily available on your premises. They often raid vegetables, plant seeds and garbage cans in human habitat. That is why most homeowners need an immediate solution to get rid of them. Skunks are stinky animals as they have a bad habit of spraying odorous liquid to avoid dangers. The poisonous fluid is their best weapon to stay safe from predators and enemies. This is the main reason why humans find it quite difficult to take skunks out of their premises. Some of you might be planning to use repellents to scare these animals. There is no doubt to say that market is loaded with wide range of repellents and deterrents that can be used to scare skunks away. But if you actually want to know do mothballs or ammonia help repel skunks? The answer is No.

There is no doubt to say that skunks don't like the strong smell of ammonia and mothballs. It can annoy them, but these things do not stay active for a long time. The smell decays with time and then skunks return. You may need to spray the ammonia solution, again and again, to maintain its effectiveness in the area. Same is the condition with mothballs; they are also effective for a shorter duration. You will not be able to scare skunks for a long run using these methods. The best idea is to look for other solution to avail desired results.

If you really want to get rid of skunks, first of all, it is important to know what attracts them to your habitat. In most of the cases, they are attracted to the open food sources available in your outdoors. And their second choice is comfortable and cozy living space. If you want to avoid skunk attacks, first, you need to create unfavorable conditions for these animals. Try to make the area unpleasant for skunks so that they start searching for some other location to build dens. If skunks have already created a den in your house, it is good to use a live cage to capture them and relocate far away from residential area. But while removing these animals, make sure you are not leaving their babes behind. Prefer to take assistance from professional skunk removal company to remove these dangerous animals from your property to ensure satisfactory results.
