San Antonio Pest Control – Rodents

Skunk species vary in size from about 15.6 to 37 inches (40 to 70 cm) and in weight from about 1.1 pounds (0.5 kg) (the spotted skunks) to 18 pounds (8.2 kg) (the hog-nosed skunks). They have a moderately elongated body with reasonably short, well-muscled legs and long front claws for digging. Although the most common fur color is black and white, some skunks are brown or gray, and a few are cream-colored. All skunks are striped, even from birth. They may have a single thick stripe across the back and tail, two thinner stripes, or a series of white spots and broken lines (in the case of the spotted skunk). Some also have bars on their legs.

Squirrel – The squirrel can become a nuisance when it chews through the facia board or roof and gains access into your soffit and attic. If you think you have a squirrel in your attic, think again. You have more than one, usually 4 or 5 or more. Squirrels are very social animals and will stay in a family unit. If you try and resolve the squirrel problem yourself, you may end up enclosing a squirrel or squirrels in your attic, which will cause significant damage as the enclosed squirrel or squirrels will chew a hole to get out. If one or more of the squirrel family members are outside, they will assist the enclosed squirrel or squirrels in chewing the hole. It is best to leave the squirrel removal and exclusion to an animal or wildlife control professional. Most of the time, the problem can be corrected quickly with no more damage caused. A wildlife professional will also assist in preventative measures to deter future squirrel problems. A squirrel can climb almost anything. If squirrels are determined to get somewhere, they will. There are devices that wildlife professionals use to help solve this problem and deter a squirrel or squirrels from climbing.
