If you need skunk control in Columbia, you have a few options. First, you can attempt to solve the skunk problem yourself
by reading our do-it-yourself guide. If you need outside help,
you can also call Richland County Animal Services to see if they have any free resources or help for you - however, they primarily deal with dog and cat concerns. You can also call a local Columbia wildlife rehabber,
as they are typically a great resource for advice that is in the best welfare of the animal. If as a last resort you must hire a professional company, we recommend Terminix Service, Inc. in Columbia.

Columbia Skunk Removal From Structures
In many cases, preventative measures can solve your Columbia skunk problem - keep garbage secured, pet food indoors, and most of all when it comes to skunks, secure the perimeter of your shed, porch, deck, or house
with a barrier - lattice or steel mesh is good, and it keeps South Carolina skunks from going under the structure. If trapping and removal of the skunk is the only option you have, please do so with the help of a local
agency or professional company who knows how to do it humanely and legally. Browse the resources of this site for more educational information.
