SOS Wildlife Control Inc. delivers humane, professional and effective skunk removal solutions. Our methods consist of conducting a thorough inspection of the property being examined to find evidence of pests and wildlife, baby wildlife, entry-points, main entry-points and potential entry-points. Once these are determined, a customized plan is devised in order to deliver the best possible results. The skunk removal process involves the installation of a one-way door that allows the skunk the exit from the area that needs vacating, but not allows them to re-enter.

Having Skunk Struggles?
Known for their odorous stench, skunks have been around causing trouble for homeowners and property owners for years. Skunks, the famous white striped mammal can be a problem when they seek shelter under decks and porches, places where they are usually found.
Skunk Removal Process
In certain circumstances, we conduct trapping solutions for wildlife and pest removal issues. This is only enforced when the animal is in the immediate vicinity and must be removed right there and then. All trapping methods conducted by SOS Wildlife Control are in accordance with Ontario rules and regulations. When trapping it, the animal is released in the general vicinity of the place found. Relocation is only used if necessary as when wildlife and pests are moved they are often disoriented with no known source of food and water. They are never relocated to an area exceeding 1 km. All processes are humane and by Ontario regulation standards.
Although conducting skunk removal and prevention on your own is an option, it isn’t always the most favourable one. Skunks have the unique ability to spray a foul odoured liquid to defend itself which they’re most popularly known from (aside from it’s long white stripe). Trying to remove a skunk will probably cause them to be anxious and more likely to spray. People who consider do-it-yourself skunk removal or prevention may not realize the cost and effort that may add up in the process. Not properly conducting these prevention or removals can result in you paying more in the long run, adding to your expenses and using your time.
In the event where young skunks are present, the use of a one-way door should not be used. The young ones do not have the ability to climb through these and if their mother does, she will not be able to return to them and nurture for them. The baby skunks are removed separately and then reunited with her young ones soon after.
In addition to time and money it can cost you, bad encounters with skunks can also put you at risk of some of the diseases that skunks carry and transmit. Skunks are possible carriers of rabies, a virus that is a transmitted from bites, scratches with contact of their saliva. Distemper is also a problem that can be spread to other animals. If you have a pet, it’s important to know the risks in having them near pests and wildlife animals.

These guys are absolutely professional. Their service is fast, perfect and reasonable. I had them remove raccoons from the attic and the foyer roof plus proof all broken vents. I couldn’t be happier with their services.

Sherwin arrived as discussed. Investigated noises in the attic and a wasp problem. Offered advice and expertise. I would recommend SOS and use Sherwin in the future again. Hopefully not too soon!

What a great job, Sherwin and Jamie! No more scratching sounds from that pesky squirrel that was trapped in the vent beside the furnace.
