Many of Nevada'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 Nevada'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 Lyon 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 Fernley animal control for wildlife issues.

Fernley Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a skunk's mating habits, when do they have babies, how do they raise their young?

Skunks will invade your house especially when rearing its pups. This is when you experience a pungent odor in your homestead and too many skunks roaming around your neighborhood. Let us understand the connection between all this with its mating and rearing habits.

Mating habits

Skunks' mating season starts from February to late march. This is what transpires during this period.

The male skunks travels for over 10 kilometers to look for its mates. This explains why you see many skunks roaming around your homestead around this period than other times.
The female has to approve of its mate. To send the rejected ones away, it sprays which then explains why the pungent smell is just too much during this period.
Their romance period last for a very short time, and within no time, the female skunk enters its gestation period.

When do skunks have babies?

The gestation period of a skunk lasts for about 70 days. The period when skunks are born is not similar to all skunks. It depends on:

When the skunk was born - older skunks have a shorter gestation period than young skunks.
Weather - when the winter is harsh, the male do not show up early for mating. This means the gestation period starts a bit late and so is the time that the pups are supposed to be born.

All in all, the gestation period ends someday after 60 to 75 days. The number of pups depends on the age of the female skunk. The older ones can give rise to as many as 15 pups while the younger ones give rise to about 9 pups.

How do they raise their young?

This is what happens soon after the mating season.

The female skunk travels to a maternal den - grass is usually laid on the floor of the maternal den to create fine breeding grounds.
The male does not take any part in raising or feeding the young. In fact, he leaves soon after mating. The male can mate different females during the same period however.
After about sixty days, the female gives birth to its pups. They are usually blind and furless at birth. The mother takes care of them for six week after which they join her in the field for hunting.
The young wean after two months after which the family breaks and the young leave to start their own territories over 10kms away.


The skunk has many predators. This is why the female skunk need to travel to a more save maternal den during gestation. The average lifespan of a skunk is about 3yrs. However, they can live to even about 7yrs in the wild.
