About Pest Animal Eugene and Our Services:
Skunks are usually characterized by their smelly spray and their looks. There fur is pure black with usually two white stripes, which makes them very known if anyone has stumbled upon them. They mostly do not mind where they live, they only care about having a good supply of food and shelter. These are the main objectives they look for when they are in needed. However, at times they will not be able to find the shelter they are hopping for, so they turn to other measures to get shelter.
Skunks have very long claws that would help them hunt and dig in the ground. This is why they tend to burrow underground when they have not found any shelter. They tend to do so, in order to stay underground until they are able to come out and find another form of shelter. For skunks, this is a very easy action to implement especially since their claws are very helpful in the process. The reason skunks tend to dig (other than for shelter), they believe that this certain spot underground has a variety of nutritionist that would be helpful for the skunk especially when carrying a young one. Their underground burrows tend to be relatively close to a water source since they prefer to be in moist climates. This would also help more food to be found because the ground would not be all dried up.
A lot of people believe that skunks just keep digging until a long hole in the ground has been formed, but this is not the case at all. Skunks may have a hard time digging due to their small legs, but when they do, they consider their burrow as their lifetime den for that point. They will most likely build an underground den with a lot of rooms that all the skunks can live together. This would be one of the extraordinary tactics that they can implement during their lifespan. Because whether they tend to travel together or not, they can live together in their own section and enjoy it.
Therefore, usually when they burrow underground, the den would consist of more than one room and you are most likely to find more than one skunk in the area. this does seem similar to a total nightmare for the household owner, but it may even be easier to capture them if they are all in the same exact location.
To identify if this underground digging hole is for the skunk or not is by examining the area around it. Are there any signs of skunk leg holes in the ground? What about claw footprints? Skunks do make footprints as they walk around, therefore it can be easy to find. Another aspect is that they prefer their dens feel as homey as possible, therefore they will bring grasses or other kind of materials that will help them get more adapted into their home. As a result, if you where to see a bunch of these materials, then you may be standing on a skunk’s den!
