Bethesda, Maryland Skunk Spray

People in Bethesda, Maryland, just like in many other places, often wait to deal with animal problems until they become emergencies. With skunks the emergency frequently occurs when a pet or a person gets sprayed. Skunk spray quickly turns a human-animal conflict into a human-animal war.

The first reaction to skunk spray is usually disbelief. People just can't believe it is really that bad. Most of us have smelled skunk odor and said, "Pewww, that really stinks!" What people don't realize is that skunk spray doesn't just stink. It burns. When the animal scores a direct hit the victim can be temporarily blinded. Vomiting, diarrhea and drooling are common. Convulsions and shock can occur, depending on where the direct hit occurred.

Skunk spray is a complex, oily chemical. The spray of each of the seven species common in North America has unique chemical properties, but they are all strong and hard to get rid of.

I say hard to get rid of, but not impossible, and the faster you act, the more successfully we can remove the smell of skunk spray from your life. Some people will say that it is impossible to get rid of skunk spray, that it just has to wear off. That is not true. While home remedies such as tomato juice will not work, there are special chemical treatments that do.

When David in Bethesda called us he was really upset. His dog had gone out to the yard very early one morning and been sprayed outside then come back in through the doggie-door and entered the kitchen before his owners realized what had happened. They got the dog out right away, but the damage had been done. They were concerned for their dog, wanted to get rid of the skunk, and REALLY wanted to get rid of the smell of skunk spray in their kitchen and throughout their house.

We were able to take care of the problems. Fortunately, the dog hadn't been hit directly in the face, but rather along his side. Other than having a very "hang-dog" look about him, being embarrassed at his foolish mistake, and smelling very strongly of skunk odor, the dog was fine. David had acted quickly enough that the skunk spray hadn't soaked into his kitchen and we were able to get the smell out before all the contents were ruined. The skunk was trapped a few days later and taken away where it and the dog wouldn't cross paths again.

We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Bethesda and surrounding areas. Give us a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.

Many of the projects we solve involve raccoon families in attics and chimneys, mud swallow nests on stucco, woodpeckers drilling siding, voles and gophers destroying lawns, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, bat infestations, skunks stealing pet food and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their noise and commotion and smell. Baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that my professional wildlife removal operators and I are prepared to solve.

Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don't hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, pigeon waste cleanup, bat guano removal, mouse droppings, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.

I have been in the professional wildlife control business for many years. My favorite stories and experiences are removing bats from schools and churches.

For pigeon and bird control, bat removal, or relief from other pest animals, call our wildlife management experts. Many nuisance wildlife companies offer critter capture and control; our wildlife operators provide professional pest wild animal management. We remove the following AND MORE:

  • Bats from attics, eaves and belfries

Bethesda Wild Animal Control News, Stories, Events and Alerts

Bats and squirrels overrun an attic in Bethesda, MD

We recently discovered that we have both squirrels and bats living in our attic.  The squirrels are entering at the corners of the roof of the house, through holes they have chewed behind the rain gutter. The bats are entering the attic at multiple points along the fascia on the peak sides of the house. I have been able to seal up three of the four corners, but there are power lines that come into the house in the fourth corner of our house. For obvious reasons, I am afraid to get up there to fix it myself.

The squirrels are our main concern because they continue to chew holes allowing more bats to come into the area. The combination of the two kinds of animal feces and urine is making our home unbearable to live in. 

I contacted the Division of Wildlife Resources and they told me that they really couldn’t do anything to help me. They just don’t cover these animals. However, they did recommend that I look for a local professional wild animal removal technician who specializes in removing unwanted animals from attics and homes. I looked through the yellow pages and found a listing under animal control for a local company.

I contacted the company and the technician and he said he would be happy to remove my unwanted visitors. He advised me that the power would be off in my home for several days as he worked. I moved my family temporary to a hotel.  (The kids loved it. They felt like they were on vacation.)

Because of the power lines’ close proximity to the problem the technician contacted the local electric company to turn off the electricity to my home. He made sure that the line was dead before he did any work.  Next, he inspected the outside of the attic and found and possible nooks and crannies where the animals were getting in. 

Next, he placed a special squirrel vent trap next to the main hole where the squirrels are getting in and safely removed them. This trap allows the squirrels to get out, but to not go back in.  There were approximately 7 flying squirrels living in our attic.

There was a colony of around 150 bats in the attic. Then he sealed all of the openings around the attic to ensure that no more animals could return.  Finally, he went into the attic with some protective gear on and removed all of the animals’ waste.
