What should I do if I see a skunk on my property?

Skunk Sighting: What Now? Running into a skunk can be surprising, but it's not uncommon. Here's the scoop on handling the situation:

Stay Calm: Skunks are known for their stinky defense mechanism, but they're more interested in finding food than causing trouble.

Give Space: If you spot a skunk, don't panic. Slowly back away and give it plenty of room.

Avoid Startling: Skunks have a strong sense of smell, so sudden movements can startle them. Stay chill.

Time to Reach Out: If the skunk is making itself too comfortable or you're not sure how to handle it, don't stress. Call a wildlife pro like us at Wildlife Control Pros in Northwest Michigan. We've got the skills to safely deal with skunk situations.

Cool Fact: Skunks aren't all about that stink – they're great at controlling pests like insects and rodents.

When Skunks Roam: Skunks can be around any time, but they're most active during the warmer months. They might be looking for food, water, or a cozy spot to chill.
