Nashville Skunk Control Information: What's that noise?

Have you ever just sat in a room and listened to a noise and it had no effect on you? Maybe it's the television that is snowy and crackly, or perhaps it's the hum of a refrigerator. While these things might not bother us, they could bother others.

The pest control community has the market cornered on coming up with unique, safe and humane ways to deal with problem animals. Skunks are one of the top odiferous offenders on the list. These animals will make their burrows or dens in dark places. These places may include under a porch or stairs, under a barn or under other outbuildings on your property. In some cases, skunks have been reported to have gotten inside people's homes. These wily little stinkers may climb through a pet door and inspect your home, especially if there is a possibility of them finding food.

There are all kinds of methods, theories, and home remedies to try to repel a skunk. However, for the people that don't want to go those routes, they often try to do something that is a little less drastic. There is a market for machines that create a noise that will repel skunks. It is very similar to the effect a high pitch dog whistle has on a dog. Basically, the machines are created to annoy the skunks instead of repel them.

The electronic devices that are created to serve this purpose may work for a short time, but the minute the sound stops broadcasting it will once again be ineffective. In a lot of cases, the method of using high pitch sound devices will work for a week or so, but then the animals become immune to it. Another disadvantage to using these high pitch or even low pitch noise devices is that it can affect your animals more than it would the pest. Any high toned frequency is rough on animal's ears-especially dogs.

Not only are they ineffective, but they can do quite the damage to someone's bank account. These kinds of devices are not cheap, and if you happen to find a cheap one, there is a good chance it will break before you get too many uses out of it. Sonic devices will do little more than annoy the skunks, and in some cases, there is a very good possibility it could startle them. We all know what happens when you startle a skunk
