How to Identify Skunk Sounds

While they're usually silent, skunks do have the ability to produce a range of sounds. They can squeal, hiss, screech, whimper, grumble, smack their lips, and stomp loudly. These noises are used to communicate fear, pain, contentedness, or to intimidate predators. Additionally, the pests make snuffling sounds when they're actively searching for food and scratching or rustling noises when burrowing. 

If you’ve heard the sounds of a skunk, call your local Critter Control. Our technicians are trained and equipped with the safest and most humane tools and techniques to remove the skunk as quickly as possible. 

Other Ways to Identify a Skunk

Your representatives make your company! They are knowledgable and responsive.  I was fortunate to have a great representative for several years.  When that changed, I was concerned that the new tech wouldn't be as well trained.  I am extreamly happy with my new tech and can say that all of the service employes have been outstanding.
