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 Severn animal control for wildlife issues.

Severn Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Skunks Shed Their Fur?

Animals covered with fur or hair tend to have certain periods of time shedding or dropping their fur or hair all over the places they go. This also applies to skunks, whose covering is filled with fur. Skunks are extremely sensitive animals, unlike the usual domestic animals which we commonly keep as pets, such as dog (canines) or cats (felines). Skunks’ shedding periods usually occur twice annually; this shedding fur process happening on skunks is usually a sign of them adapting to the changes in the climate temperatures.

1. Fur Shedding Period in spring

Spring is a nice and cooling season which most flowers bloom beautifully, with gentle breezes. This is when animals come out of their hibernations and enjoy these amazing weather changes outside their nesting grounds. Especially for skunks, they develop a thick undercoat of fur to protect and keep themselves warm during the chilly temperatures in winter. This is when these skunks will start to shed away their current thick fur undercoat and develop a much softer, thinner and furry layer of fur undercoat to help them feel cooler for both seasons in spring and summer. At this time of the year, skunks shed more fur, as compared to their fur shedding period in fall / autumn.

2. Fur Shedding Period in fall / Autumn

Rains and snow happen during fall / autumn and winter seasons. Skunks are required to keep themselves warm during these two cold and chilly seasons and prevent themselves from getting drenched from the rainy weathers. When summer is turning to fall, skunks will start to shed away their thin and soft layer of fur and replace their undercoats with thick and waterproof fur for climate protection and resistance.

3. Other Reasons for Shedding Fur

However, the changes in seasons are not just the only reason for skunks to shed their fur. There are also several factors that cause the fur shedding process on skunks, such as malnutrition, the variations of sunlight amounts, skunks’ lifestyles in different parts of the world, health statuses, behavior changes and even their demographics like ages and breeds. If the skunks are not fed with enough nutrients for their growth or their hormones change to a negative impact which is not able to support skunks’ well-beings, then their bodies may not be able to help them sustain or maintain a beautiful fur undercoat, causing them to shed fur, apart from those seasonal changes.
