Skunks under my house
I had a customer call me on a Saturday afternoon and asked me to help get Skunks out from under his house in Sonoma. I arrive at his house the following morning and did a quick inspection of his foundation and found the only way in was under his deck at a crawl space access. The access door had been damaged and left in disrepair for sometime. The Fact that the access was under the deck and there wasn't enough space to put traps under the deck I was going to have to set the traps at the side of the deck. I inspected the entire deck looking for what was the most used route to and from the crawlspace access. I chose two spots that showed signs of animal activity and set my traps there. I got access to the customers WiFi and set up 3 Ring Stickup cameras. 2 looking at the traps I set and 1 pointed at the crawlspace access so I can monitor what is coming and going. It took a week put I was able to catch 3 skunks that had taken up residence under the house. I left traps and cameras out for 2 extra days to make sure there weren't any other animals in the crawl space before I sealed it up. I poured concrete at the base of the access because I noticed that the foundation wasn't poured under the access opening. This will prevent anything from digging under the door I put over the access.
