Gotcha Wildlife's Toronto based raccoon control services are 100% humane. A technician will thoroughly inspect your property in order to locate the point of entry. Once the area of entry is located a one-way release system will be installed. Thus, humanly allowing the animal(s) to leave but not re-enter. In addition, to prevent future re-entry, other common areas on roof should be secured. Common areas that need to be secured include roof vents, plumbing matts, fascia gap, roof soffit intersections, chimneys, decks, sheds, and porches.
Skunks can carry rabies, which can be transmitted through saliva from a bite and possibly scratches. Skunks can also transmit leptospirosis, canine hepatitis, and canine distemper. Skunk spray contains Methyl mercaptan. It is a colorless, highly flammable, foul-smelling gas that is produced in the intestinal tract of a skunk by the action of bacteria on a variety of proteins known as the albumins. If this spray comes in contact with eyes or skin it can become irritant and hard to wash out of any clothing or material it may come in contact with.
