Most San Jose residents are aware of a skunk's unique method of defense, and most people will not approach them for this reason. Your pets, on the other hand, will be curious if they see another animal nearby. Skunk spray can temporarily blind humans and pets, so we recommend not approaching skunks if you are not a trained proffessional. Critter Control of San Jose at 408.915.2172.

Keeping Skunks Away

If you begin to see an uptick in skunks visiting your home, it is probably due to the vegetation or bugs that you have on your property. Although skunks usually prefer wooded areas, they can find shelter around your home very easily.  When you find a skunk, it is mostly in areas like your deck or patio; they usually migrate to these areas because they can hide there. Skunks are certainly not picky eaters. They often consume rats, mice, bugs, vegetation and even trash! San Jose’s professional technicians can get rid of skunks from your property and deploy prevention techniques to keep them away. These techniques include: 

  • Removing debris and trash from around landscapes
  • Installing fencing
