The Indiana striped skunk is a member of the weasel family. The adult skunk may weigh from 4 to 6 pounds. Its body is covered with long, black and white fur and the amount of either very greatly. Being a nocturnal creature, skunks will not generally wander more then a quarter of a mile from it’s den in search of food. Skunks will go into a semi-hibernation state in the cold winter.

Mid-March is peak mating season for the skunks and males will fight and spray under crawlspaces throughout the state. 62 days after mating, the female will give birth to around four mouse sized young. Skunks are the number one carrier of rabies in the state of Indiana. It is common for them to den in crawlspaces and up under decks.

If you are looking for a skunk removal company, look no further. Skunk trapping is second nature to us. It is illegal to poison skunks. The poison is often eaten by a neighborhood dog or cat which could end up dying a slow and miserable death. The best way to solve any skunk problem is with a skunk trap. We make all our own skunk bait so eliminating skunks is no problem for us. Most skunk calls we receive are crawlspace skunks. The skunk odor can be so horrible that I have had homeowners move into a hotel for a few days until the smell is better. Unfortunately, sometimes the only way to get rid of skunk smell is to remove whatever the skunk sprayed.

Skunks have two glands located at both sides of the anal canal which can be fired at the same time or separate. The oily substance can be sprayed up to 12 feet and the mist off of the spray will travel a lot further. We don’t worry too much because we know the number one skunk odor removal product on earth. We have trapped hundreds of skunks in the Indianapolis and surrounding areas and have been providing critter control since 2004.
