Skunk in Crawlspace
Topeka Animal Control and Removal. Customer called from Topeka, Indiana yesterday morning complaining of a bad smell in the house. Our technician arrived and began to do the inspection when he found this skunk in the crawlspace. This is where the “ninja” skills kick in. The trick here is to get the live skunk from the crawlspace into the cage trap without the skunk spraying in the house. Often times, skunks will dig under the foundation of homes and enter into the crawlspace. Sometimes a customer will smell a slight hint of skunk. Mostly just from the skunk urine not a full blown glandular release. However, sometimes a skunk will tangle with another animal under a home and this can be a horrible experience for a home owner with the skunk smell lingering on for weeks in their home. Well, this skunk removal job was a great success. This Topeka, Indiana home owner was very happy that the American Animal Control tech was able to remove the skunk in the crawlspace from their home and into the skunk trap without the skunk spraying in the house.
