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.

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 Harris 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 The Woodlands animal control for wildlife issues.

The Woodlands Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Baby or Juvenile Skunks Spray?

When you come across a skunk, there are a few things that come to mind. First and foremost is that stinky spray they are famous for, which they spray in self-defense. You want to remain cautious of skunks, keeping your distance, to avoid getting sprayed by one. Do you, though, have to practice the same caution with baby and juvenile skunks? If you see one of these little guys, do you have to fear the spray just as much, regardless of age? Knowing this can help you if you need to help or approach one at any time, like if one has found its way into your yard.

Why They Spray

Skunks spray as a defense. When something approaches them, they will need to protect themselves in some way. As they are small animals, without other forms of reliable defense, this is the best way to keep predators off of them. Adults can spray perfectly fine, as just about everyone knows, but the concern comes with the young ones. Can the young ones spray, and, if so, can they spray equally as effectively as the adults can? Will the young skunks be able to defend themselves if they fear something is about to harm them?

When They Can Spray

Freshly born skunks are not going to be able to spray. However, at a couple weeks old, they may develop that ability, just not to the extent that adults can. Baby skunks are not going to spray nearly as effectively or with nearly as much control as the adults. This results in small sprays and the little babies not having a lot of control over what they are doing.

Once they are a few months old, though, the spraying becomes easier. At this age, the skunk can begin spraying and controlling the spray. They are able to defend themselves without their mother there to spray for them. Even so, most skunks will remain with their mother for longer.

With all of this, it is important to note that no skunk is going to spray immediately. Skunks only spray when there is an immediate threat that does not heed the skunk's warnings, of which it will give plenty. Spraying is a last resort for skunks. For baby skunks, who may get frightened far easier, you might have to worry about the spraying, but skunks in general will spray only when they deem you a serious threat.
