Effective Skunk Trapping Skunk trapping is a tricky and potentially dangerous task. All homeowners are familiar with the pungent and foul smelling liquid skunks spray as a line of defense against any perceived threat, but what they may not realize is that skunks can spray up to 10 feet in distance! Not only is the smell overwhelming, but if the spray reaches the eyes it can cause temporary blindness. Skunk control and skunk removal services should always be left to trained wildlife experts like those at Critter Control of Cape Cod. We offer skunk trapping, skunk removal, and skunk infestation prevention services.
