Rabies is one of the biggest dangers when dealing with skunks. In fact, according to the CDC, there were 1,588 cases reported cases involving skunks in 2014 which represented 26.3 percent of wildlife rabies cases in the United States.

The first step is to always remove the pests, but few go the extra mile to keep them from returning. We take the time to identify key entry points into your home or property by either sealing holes, adding welded wire below decks, chimney caps, attic vent covers, metal flashing, or installing ridge guards afterwards to best prevent these pests from coming back.
