Stay back! Skunks can spray their oily spray up to ten feet. You should never try to corner a skunk whether it is in a building or outside. Skunks are most likely to spray when they are cornered or startled. Skunks have very bad eyesight so if they are startled they are more likely to spray. Critter Gitters has many years of experience dealing with skunks so we are able to accurately read their body language. We also know all of the best practices to avoid getting sprayed. However when we are trapping a skunk we still have the pleasure of getting sprayed by a skunk from time to time.

If you do happen to be sprayed by a skunk we have extensive experience getting the skunk smell off of skin as well as clothing. As far as clothing is concerned you should discard all clothing before entering your residence.

It is not worth trying to keep any article of clothing a skunk has sprayed. We use a specialized skunk spray removal compound. It is one of the only things we have found that actually gets the smell off of human skin. All of the home remedies do not really work. Some of the home remedies can help a little but the smell is very prevalent even after using the home remedies for skunk removal.

The video at the bottom of the page shows us safely removing a skunk from an auto repair shop. The skunk managed to get its head stuck in the bottom of a yogurt container. This happens more often than you might think so much so that they may want to consider redesigning their packaging. Skunks will smell the yogurt left at the bottom of the container and go in to eat what is left. It is similar to leaving milk in a saucer for a kitten. Skunks are going to go for the yogurt. They can get their heads in easily but getting their heads back out is another story. Many skunks will suffocate this way due to the lack of oxygen that is able to make it into the container once their heads are stuck. If you see a skunk that needs assistance or around your property we are here to help you and protect the skunks too.
