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 Washoe 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 Sparks animal control for wildlife issues.

Sparks Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep skunk out of my garbage cans

Due to human encroachment, skunks have adapted the urban living. They raid your trashcans in such of food. In return, they cause too much damage in the area or even end up spraying the area. Even though, the items in the trashcans need to be disposed, all this mess is unbearable and hence measures need to be taken to keep the skunk away.

Keeping the skunk out of your garbage cans

Different measures can be put into place to keep skunks out of your garbage cans. Here are some but just a few of them:

Keep the garbage cans indoors - the garbage cans should remain indoors or in a tightly enclosed place until when they are emptied.
Use heavy lids to close the garbage cans - actually, you should consider buying garbage cans made of heavy materials from top to bottom. This prevents the cunning animal from shaking and knocking down the garbage cans.
Make sure that all the trash papers are kept inside the garbage tanks - avoid at all cost leaving plastic bags containing garbage outside the garbage cans.

Alternative method of keeping out the skunk from the garbage cans

If you cannot keep the garbage tanks indoors, or still you have not found garbage tanks made of heavy materials, you can consider using repellents. Follow these steps for better results:

Clean the area around the garbage tanks well- this is what attracts skunks in the first place. Make sure that the area as well as the garbage tanks is spotless clean before spraying the repellents.
Choice of repellent - find out the type of repellents that best keeps away the skunk. Consult someone in your neighborhood who has experienced the same problem some time back or a professional. I prescribe ammonia repellents and repellents made from predators' urine.
Use of the repellents - after picking the best repellent, learns of how it is mixed. Put the mixture in a spray bottle and spray the area around the garbage tank carefully. Take your time to learn about the spray to avoid too much money wastage.
Keep spraying - the repellents need to be kept effective all the time. Therefore, you need to keep spraying the area especially after one week or when it rains.


The skunk has adapted human diet due to human encroachment. This cannot be reversed. However, the above measures can be taken to keep them out of your garbage tanks for good.
