skunk in Rohnert Park
I got a call from a customer in Rhonert Park who believed he had a skunk in his crawl space. He had found a hole that lead under his foundation in the front of his house. He explained to me that he has had Skunk Problems before and that his foundation is not very deep. I scheduled a time with him for me to come out that afternoon. I arrived and set up a ring stickup camera that I connected to his WiFi. I reached in the hole and placed the camera under the foundation in the hole. This will let me know exactly what is under his house. I then set two traps in front of the hole and blocked them in with plywood and cement blocks. I do this so I am only catching the animals that are under his house and not something just passing by who might be attracted to the bait. I set another Ring Stick Up camera looking at the 2 traps so I will be able to see exactly what is in the traps in the morning. That night around midnight the camera under the house picked up movement by a skunk. It left through the hole and went right into one of the waiting traps. I saw the video of the skunk in the trap immediately when I woke up at 5:30am and I was on the road to remove the skunk by 6am. I set up the traps in such a way that allowed me to walk up behind them without being seen by the skunk in the trap. I was extra careful not to make any noise as I covered the trap and removed the skunk. I was successful this time in removing the skunk without it spraying. I always shoot for that but sometimes they spray without warning.
