Learn More About These Striped Stinkers
Skunks are omnivores who eat a wide range of bugs, plants and fruits. Skunks often dig for bugs and this can take a toll on your lawn or garden. These critters are opportunists and will raid garbage, animal feed stores, pet food and even get into your house to find food. The most common species of skunk invader in Michigan is the Striped Skunk. This species has webbed toes, helping this animal dig for food. As the name suggests, this species is easy to identify, thanks to the white stripe that runs from head to tail. Skunks can carry many diseases, including rabies, which can be transferred to pets, family or staff.
Skunks nest in a burrow, and will sometimes use your spaces like under porches, decks and sheds as a nesting ground. A skunk's gestation period is around 63 days. They give birth to an average of 5-6 kits around early to mid May. The young leave the nest about 6 to 10 weeks after birth. Once they establish a nest, removing skunks is difficult, and requires skilled and experienced hands, like ours at Varmint Evictors, Inc..
