Illinois is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Benton wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. Some Benton animals frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.

County Animal ServicesDOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Franklin County Animal Control for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Franklin County animal control, and see what they have to say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that helps with dog and cat issues only.

Benton Wildlife Tip:
About Skunks: Appearance, Biology, Life Cycle, Habitat, Diet, Behavior

Skunks are small mammals, but they are popular for their unique ability to spray odorous spray to avoid dangers. You may find several species of skunks worldwide with a wide range of colors and fur patterns on their body. In most areas of the United States, you will find skunks with a black and white combination of fur whereas few mammals are also seen in brown and cream color. The surprising fact is that they may also change their colors to give some warning signals.

Appearance of skunks

You might have heard about coat color variations of skunks but in actual these mammals also vary in terms of size as well. They may have size somewhere around 15 inches and can go as high as up to 37 inches. As per size changes, they follow great variations in their body weight as well. The estimated weight of commonly observed skunks in the United States is around 1 lb; however, the hog-nosed skunks may have a maximum weight of 18 inches as well. Skunks are known for their highly muscularized but short legs; their front claws use to be long enough.

Diet of skunks

These odorous animals are omnivorous creatures; it means they can eat anything that is available with ease including other animals and plants as well. However, their diet also keeps on changing in different seasons. Most of the time, skunks eat up earthworms, larvae, grubs, insects; they can even target a larger animal such as rodents, frogs, lizards, salamanders and several varieties of snakes as well. They also love to feed on leaves, nuts, grasses, fungi and plant roots. From past few years, these creatures have shifted to an urban lifestyle where they prefer to feed on human leftovers and garbage, etc. Skunks keep on digging holes in the gardens and lawns to get some food and may also crawl to places where they can find easy access to pet food.

Behavior of skunks

Skunks prefer to live alone in their marked territories; however, they may get together in the winter season to share warmth. Generally, the female and male skunks create overlapping territories, and they also get together for the mating season. Skunks prefer to become inactive during cold weather, but they do not hibernate. The females often prefer to live in the group during the winter season; however, males may still roam alone.

Life cycle of skunks

Skunks are observed to have polygynous habits, and they find their partner for mating in the spring season. Males can mate with many females and once the female goes into gestation period the male moves away. The mother skunk takes full responsibility to raise her babies and provide them food from time to time. The gestation duration for skunks is 66 days, and female skunks prefer to search for a safe location to give birth to their babies. Even male skunks act like predators to newborn skunks, so mothers take great initiate to protect them by all means.
