Messing with a scared skunk is a sure fire way to end up sprayed. That stench is going to be nearly impossible to get out of your clothes or furniture, not to mention your hair.


They’re cute from far away, and ferocious up close. Squirrels are quick little animals that are not afraid to attack when threatened.


A trapped bird can sometimes be easy to rid your home of by simply opening a door or window, but if you find a nest in your eaves or elsewhere on or near your home, call an exterminator to safely move the birds.
