How To Humanely Trap Skunks Using Its Favorite Treat Skunk Indulgence Bait
Timid, clever, and adorable as babies, a cornered skunk produces a powerful odor. Most people won’t stand for a potentially smelly skunk or family of skunks living under a porch, a deck, a shed, or a garage. However, the nocturnal skunk needs shelter during the day when they are most vulnerable, and your property may very well be its best solution for its safety.
These nighttime creatures dig holes on property while looking for one of their favorite foods, grubs. If you smell skunk odor, see torn-up grass, and damaged plants and gardens, you probably have a skunk nearby and want it removed.
Removing a skunk from your property demands preparation, knowledge, patience, observation, and, of course, the use of Skunk Indulgence Bait for these hard to trap New World carnivorous mammals. We always suggest hiring a professional wildlife control company that uses a humane live trap. But, once trapped, skunks can spray, though these nocturnal stinkers generally won’t if they don’t feel threatened.
Agitated skunks often spray but visually signal before spraying by stomping their front feet and quickly turning around and raising their tail. If this behavior occurs, the trapper needs to back away and give the skunk some time to calm down. Once the skunk is calm, you can slowly approach the cage, gently lift it without jarring or banging it into anything, and when you begin to walk, they will settle down.
What’s ironic is that once placed in a vehicle for transportation, a skunk gets calmed by the vehicle’s motion and seldom sprays once in transport. And if you place a bit of Skunk Indulgence Bait in the trap that keeps the skunk occupied with their tasty treat!
