  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?

  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?

  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Maryland'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 Maryland'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 Anne Arundel 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 Arnold animal control for wildlife issues.

Arnold Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Skunks Warn Before Spraying?

Animals’ Self Protection Tactics

Every animal has their own method of protecting themselves from dangers or threats, including humans as well. Depending on the animals’ distinct behavior and their species, they can have all sorts of self-defense tactics. For instance, snakes have fangs to poison their enemies; hedgehogs will flip up their spikes on their backs upon feeling threatened, and many more, etc. Skunks too have their own self-protection tactic and that is their pungent spray from their tails.

1. Do Skunks Warn Before Spraying?

Skunks defend themselves from any threats or dangers by spraying a strong smelly stench from their tail glands and not for attacking their prey. Like other animals, skunks tend to give signs of warning to their potential dangers or threats, before they totally got frightened enough to spray as counter attack basis.

2. Warning Signs from Skunks

There are many warning signs, before skunks decide to spray to protect themselves. We will just have to watch out for signs like:

1. Feet Stomping
2. Tail Raising
3. Running towards the threat or danger, stopping to squeal and hiss at their threats
4. Hand Stands
5. Turning Around

3. Skunks’ Spraying Process Stages

So, you may be wondering how skunks spray to protect themselves? It is quite noticeable if you can react fast enough, once you have noticed skunks’ reaction to be at any following stages:

• Frozen to ground and raised their tail straight
• Moving their rears up with their hind legs
• Feet stomping
• Head / Hand Standing

4. How to Avoid Being Sprayed by Skunks?

If you notice any one of the above warning or in-process spraying signs, then it is ideal for you to move away as quiet as possible. Do be reminded that loud noises created while in the process of moving away from the skunks may quicken the skunks’ spraying time.
