Skunks feel right at home in urban areas like Toronto. They love to eat garbage, compost, and even neglected pet food. These sources of food attract skunks to homes and businesses.

Skunks are not good at climbing therefore they tend to stay low. But they are extremely good diggers and can burrow under sheds and decks to build their nest.

What Threats Do Skunks Pose?

Mother skunks are extremely protective of their young. Skunks can spray up to 15 feet. If this spray gets in your eyes, it can burn and even cause temporary blindness.

The foul odour is also a mark of territory. The horrible odour around your home will persist until the skunk is removed.
