When you hire a wild animal control expert to remove a skunk from your home or yard, they will look for a den, a nest, or the skunk itself. Then they set traps near the areas where the skunk is believed to be living. They may set multiple traps around the house if a skunk infestation is suspected.

The length of time it takes to complete the process is determined by how long it takes to locate the skunk and set the trap in that location. The entire procedure costs between $300 and $600 and includes everything from inspection to skunk removal. Often, skunks will cause property damage that will add to the cost of skunk control.
