About Pest Animal Oxnard and Our Services:
How to get rid of Oxnard skunks? This is the question many seek an answer to. There are several reasons why discovering
a right way to keep skunks away from their homes is an issue for some people. On the one hand, skunks can be very
aggressive and cause damage to a household. If a skunk wonders inside someone's front yard, it is going to be scared
and might attack pets, as well as spray humans. This situation is stressful both for the animal and the homeowner. If
the household keeps farm animals, particularly poultry, there is also a risk of skunks attacking and killing farm
animals. On the other hand, finding a right way to keep the skunks out is an important issue for homeowners because
the majority of people don't want to hurt skunks. Essentially, California skunks are neither particularly aggressive nor dangerous
animals. It is justified for people to want to find a way to prevent skunk invasions without hurting the animal. But,
what are those ways?
Home repairs are, by far, the best way to protect your home against skunk infestations. The best way to keep skunks out is to regularly repair your home, including fences, walls, roof, doors, and windows. To know how to secure your home against skunks, you should know a few facts about skunks and their behavior. First things first, skunks have sharpened hearing and smell, which allow them to sense food at great distances. This means that, if you leave in the skunk-inhabited area, you need to make sure that your home doesn't appear to them as a great source of food. Keeping your yard clean from piles of garbage will definitely help. Empty your trash cans and remove any garbage from your yard as often as possible, so that the smell of food remains wouldn't attract skunks. However, the first line of defense, when it comes to skunk prevention, is fencing. Keeping your fences deeply dug in, sturdy and sealed is the best way to protect your home against skunks. Last, but not the least, sealing your home from any holes and gaps, as well as repairing any rotten spots in your doors, windows, and roof, will definitely keep an Oxnard skunk outside your California home.
Exclusion of skunks is the process of removing Oxnard skunks living inside a building without harming the animal. This is a process you can resort to if you already have a problem with a skunk living in your home. To begin, you must seal any exit and entry spots for the skunks but one spot, which you will use to exclude the animal. Since we know that skunks are nocturnal, they will use the remaining exit hole to go outside and search for food. Spread a thin layer sand, flower or dust across the path leading to the existing exit, to be able to spot the skunk's footprints and know that the animal has gone out for sure. At night, once you determine that the skunk has left the building, seal the last remaining hole, this process will prevent the skunk from coming back. However, before you exclude the skunk, make sure to inspect the space thoroughly for any remaining babies. If a mother California skunk is not able to reach her babies, they will starve to death in your basement or attic, which is definitely not something you want.
