New Freedom Homeowner Discovers Skunk in Window Well

New Freedom Homeowner Discovers Skunk in Window Well

On May 19th a homeowner off of N. 2nd Street New Freedom 17349 was in emergency need of a skunk removal company in New Freedom. She had let her dog out in the yard first thing in the morning and right away the dog began barking uncontrollably. When the homeowner opened the back door to check on the dog the odor hit the homeowner like a ton of bricks. It was obvious to her that her dog had been sprayed by a skunk. The dog continued to bark at the basement window well and when the homeowner approached the dog she saw that a skunk was trapped down the window well. The homeowner had no idea how to get rid of a skunk and especially didn’t know how to get a skunk out of a window well. She called Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control who is the leading pest control company in New Freedom that offers expert skunk trapping services, skunk control services, skunk odor remediation services, and skunk damage repair. The technician from Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control that services New Freedom deals with skunk problems on a daily basis throughout southern York County and has been doing so for nearly 20 years now.

The technician explained to the homeowner that southern York County including New Freedom has a very high population of skunks. He removes an average of 5 skunks from window wells every week. The homeowner informed the technician that she sees several skunks every evening in her yard. He explained to the homeowner that skunks only spray when they feel threatened or in danger. He explained that to get the skunk out of the window well he must slide a special board down the window well which will let the skunk walk out of the well and when he approaches the skunk he must be very quiet and move in a slow gentle manner so he doesn’t get sprayed. The technician slid the special board down the well and the skunk quickly walked out of the well and ran across the yard under her neighbors shed. Since skunks are territorial and usually remain in one area the technician knew that the skunk was probably living under the shed. Since the homeowner sees several skunks in her yard every evening she decided to have the technician set live capture traps to trap and remove the skunks from her property. During 5 days of trapping the technician removed 4 skunks from the homeowner’s yard.

Groundhog Digs Into Basement in Westminster

Groundhog Digs Into Basement in Westminster

Groundhog removal companies in Westminster remain busy trapping groundhogs and repairing damages they cause do to the high population of groundhogs in the Westminster area. Despite that groundhogs have a cute friendly appearance they can cause very costly damages to homes, buildings, sheds, barns, retaining walls, roadways, walkways, and ponds. Groundhogs dig burrows with extensive tunnels and chambers between 3 and 15 below ground. Groundhogs are very clever animals and prefer to dig the entry holes to their burrows under structures such as porches and sheds to prevent rain from entering the hole. Groundhogs have also figured out that digging a hole next to the foundation of a home or building also helps keep rainwater out. The foundation wall of a home or building also provides their tunnels and chambers with the perfect support that will not collapse on them. As they dig down alongside the foundation wall they will dig their main chamber underneath of the homes concrete basement floor. Again this helps to keep the rain out of their living space (chambers) but unfortunately, over time the concrete basement floor will crack and even collapse causing the homeowner thousands of dollars in damage. Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control who is the leading groundhog trapping company in Westminster received a call from a homeowner off of New Windsor Road, Westminster, 21157 on April 19th about a groundhog that was running around in their basement. This was an old stone house with a basement that had a stone floor. A few of the stones on the floor were missing so the groundhog dug a hole into the basement. Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control set live capture traps and within an hour the groundhog was trapped and removed. The homeowners also had Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control seal up the groundhog’s hole and tunnel along the foundation of the home. In addition, Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control poured 8 inches of concrete on the dirt basement floor to prevent groundhogs or any other critters from getting in.
