If you find you have skunks taking up residence on your property, you need to act quickly. They are one of the most common residential property pests in central Massachusetts and are known to hide under sheds and decks, dig holes in yards, and worst of all, spray unsuspecting pets and people with a nasty, stinky, hard-to-remove fluid that seems to linger forever! Luckily, skunk removal is a specialty of Ford’s Hometown Services (FHS), headquartered in Worcester.
Getting rid of skunks for homeowners is not difficult, but it requires skilled assistance from licensed PAC (Problem Animal Control) professionals like FHS to minimize the risk of getting sprayed by these pungent black-and-white mammals. We offer:

- Expert advice: The best way to get rid of skunks is to not attract them to your property in the first place.

We can also identify places that need fenced off and areas that may need extra lighting to keep these nocturnal pests away.
While there are many do-it-yourselfers out there who have attempted to get rid of skunks, Worcester MA themselves, it often ends up being disastrous.
