Dayton Skunk Removal Tips
For the past several years the Dayton area has had an explosion in its skunk population and with this homeowners (and their pets) encounter them more often. Dogs are often sprayed by a skunk and if the skunk spray hits the dog in the eyes or face, it can cause discomfort to your pet. Temporary blindness lasting several hours is common and we have witnessed reports of the skunk spray entering the dog’s lungs and the smell can linger on for months.
Skunks have two glands near the anus and if threatened, they excrete the skunk essence onto whatever offends them in a spray from their rear end. This yellowish-green substance packs a noxious odor and leaves an oil-like residue that permeates the air and clings to almost any surface; that is why the skunk smell lingers on for such a long time.
Barnes Wildlife Control carries skunk odor counteractants on each service vehicle and if not treated the skunk spray odor can last up to a month or more.
When we find deceased skunks under decks and foundations, the skunk smell can last for several months and moisture reactivates the odor; that’s why you think the smell may be getting better but after rain, the smell returns. Skunk essence is very difficult to remove and home remedies such as bleach, tomato juice, and baking soda don’t work well.
Juvenile “baby” skunks trapped as they were coming out from under the porch. Pea gravel laying in the mulch or flower bed is a sign of skunks digging under concrete to raise their young.

How To Get Rid Of Skunk Smell On A Pet And In Your Home
Thankfully, You Can Banish The Dreaded Odor — With Barnes Wildlife Control’s Skunk Scent Removal Tips
Get Rid Of Skunk Smell On Your Pet Using The Following Steps
We can offer your dog or cat bathing services if you can’t handle washing your pet yourself because the smell bothers you too much. If you want to attempt it yourself, follow the steps below for pet skunk odor removal.
- If the weather allows, try to keep your dog or cat outside to prevent contamination inside the home.
- Find yourself some old clothes that you can throw out, disposable kitchen gloves that are elbow length, and some safety glasses in case your dog or cat shakes while bathing.
- Make the Skunk Odor Removal Potion:
Part a) 1 quart of over-the-counter hydrogen peroxide (~3%)
Part b) ¼ cup baking soda
Part c) 1 teaspoon liquid dish soap (Dawn is the best). Mix thoroughly with a mixing utensil.
- Immediately apply the potion onto the pets’ fur and rub in thoroughly and rinse the pet until water runs clear.
- Use your favorite pet shampoo, bathe your pet, and rinse clean. For some pets, repeating this step may be necessary over a few days.
Are You Wondering “How Can I Get Rid Of The Skunk Smell In My Home?”
Barnes Wildlife Control offers skunk deodorizer services for your home to remove skunk smells. Some home remedies (white vinegar in open bowls, baking soda, masking agents such as candles and air fresheners) work but take a long time to see improvement. We take a more direct route to remove the odor by using odor counteractants that change the odor-causing particulate’s molecular structure, which removes the foul odor. Go here if you would like more information about these services.
Don’t feed skunks if you want to avoid problems.
