Determine & deal with skunk under porch.

This company has phone numbers in Toronto, Mississauga, Burlington & Halton Hills/Milton. They charged me 140 to come out to assess our problem. The guy looked at the porch and said a skunk could live there. Then he said it would be at least 700 to dig and screen the area. I did not notice he evaluated the area any more than we had. He did not look for any tell-tale signs or go close enough to use any sort of expertise. For his guess that a skunk could be living under the porch he charged me 140! They called back a week later to follow up and I told them that the price was exorbitant and that they already had received enough from me. We turned the hose on and tried to flush out a skunk and nothing happened so we are just leaving the lights on at night for now. There is no other way to get rid of a skunk. I believe the charge for the inspection is not worth the money unless they do a thorough investigation and confirm the presence of the skunk before you go to the next step spending 700 to dig and screen.

Company Response

First of all, the girls in the office go to great length in explaining our services and approx. costs to customers over the phone. Animals living under your porch or deck is a labour intensive and costly procedure. It's not just dig and screen...we dig down a foot and out a foot along the entire perimeter and install stainless steel screening along with a one-way door to release the animal. Approx. 4 days later we return to remove the door and completely deodorize the area as well as seal the final entry point. This can take 2-3 guys an entire day to install, how much do you think it should cost?? I would also like to add that all our trucks are equipped with GPS units in them, the technician spent 43 minutes at your home for the inspection so he must have done a little more than you described. Lastly, I would like to add that with all of the FREE information available on the internet, the best you could come up with is to stick a hose down the hole? Really? Top of the food chain eh? Were all doomed!
