The most common skunk species in Los Angeles and Orange County is the striped skunk. They are beautiful animals but can be very destructive and of course very smelly. Skunks have almost zero climbing ability but have powerful front legs and claws that they use to dig burrows and tunnels. They tear up lawns looking for grubs, under fence lines and even under the foundations of homes to gain access to the crawlspace.
We offer skunk prevention services to keep skunks off of your property and from penetrating your home. The most common method we use for skunk control is skunk trapping. We catch them alive in cage style skunk traps then return for removal once they are caught. This is usually the safest method for a home or business to minimize any residual odor when they spray.
