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

Leander Wildlife Removal Tip: Do skunks run out of spray?

Actually, the question may be a little confusing whether or not the skunks run out of their spray. Basically, what you should know is that a skunks spray is a limited defensive spray that will only last for a short period. There are different types of skunk each with its own times that it can spray. Before we can go into much details, here is what we shall analyses;

• What is skunks spray.
• Is it dangerous?
• Can a skunk run out of the spray?

These are the question that will help you understand this powerful defense mechanism that the skunks use to defend themselves.

What is the skunks spray?

A skunks spray is simply what has been said over and over again, it is defense mechanism. Just like a rhino has its horn, a porcupine it spikes, the same way the skunk has its own spray. For a variety of reasons, the skunks will often spray. When it does spray, just do not hold that against it, it is trying to defend itself from predators like the coyotes as well as the humans. A skunk’s spray is something that you do not want to get close to, it is dangerous and people are advised to keep away.

Is it dangerous?

A spray from the skunk is dangerous. But first here is how they will spray. First, the skunk has two anal gland the glands produces a chemical that contains sulfur. The smell that come out from the spray in particular is unbearable. We all know the dangers associated with the sulfur, therefore, this makes the spray from the animal particularly so dangerous. The skunks sharply aims at the animal perceived as a threat and then spray right at it. That concentration is what makes the spray dangerous.

Can the spray run out?

For a stripped skunk, it can only spray five to eight times within a very short period of time. After which the spray will run out. To recuperate the spray, it will take some few weeks or just a week for the body to produce another spray. Basically for a normal spray, an adult can be able to spray 2-3 launching before running out of its supplies.


Skunks cannot run out of their spray definitely. However, they cannot keep on spraying like all day. Once the period’s spray is over, the skunk will have to wait for another one to two weeks.
