We are experts in skunk control, and we are not your typical Charlottesville, Virginia wildlife removal company. First off, we never use poison — not only is it useless, it causes a terrible death for the animals that ingest it. Instead, we make sure to use only humane methods in our skunk removal process, such as using exclusion barriers to safely trap and relocate the animals. If we encounter a mother skunk and her kits, we take extra care to move the kits to a safe place. We completely solve your skunk problem by taking these steps:
- Inspect the entire property, ground to roof, porch, shed, deck, etc
- Seal all entry areas shut - no matter how small - with steel
- Set several humane live traps in the house and around your property
- Remove all skunks as they are caught and monitor for activity
- Once there is no more activity and no more skunks caught, we're done
- When necessary, we remove feces, replace insulation, and repair chewed materials

Charlottesville skunk removal tip of the month: Skunks in crawl spaces of house - The crawl spaces of a house are usually prime locations for critters because they are underground, never visited by people, and often subject to damage without the homeowner's knowledge. If you have skunks in your crawl space, the only option you have is to trap the animals and remove them. You can try the repellents on the market, but most of these are made from mothballs or urine and have little to no effect on skunks. If you're willing to spend some money on repellents first, that's your choice, but it'd be money better spent on purchasing a cage trap. These traps are not expensive, and they can be reused if you have other critter issues down the road. The other item you're going to need is a tarp or a heavy blanket. You don't want something that needs to be reused. A tarp can be hosed down and cleaned, but if you're using a blanket, use one that can be thrown away. First, find the area around the foundation where the skunks are entering the crawlspace. You can either place your cage trap directly next to the opening, or you can building a funnel made of temporary fencing that forces the skunk to enter the trap. Bait doesn't have to be complex; you can just use marshmallows or wet cat food.
