“We had a very pleasant experience while Sherwin was at our house removing the skunks that had taken up residence underneath our shed. Sherwin and his crew installed a a one-way trap so the skunks could exit humanely but not return. They also installed a guard around the shed that would prevent the skunks from digging to get underneath the shed should they decide to return. He was prompt, professional, thorough, and very friendly. He also provided a prompt follow-up to make sure that the skunks were gone. We highly recommend Sherwin and S.O.S. Wildlife Control.” -Homestar Review
