Skunks often den in burrows. They will often use abandoned burrows dug by ground squirrels, foxes, or coyotes and will enlarge them if necessary. If dens are scarce, they will readily use brush piles, hollow logs, and culverts.
In urban settings, they den under decks, porches, or beneath buildings. If other suitable dens are unavailable, skunks will dig their own dens.
Skunks are attracted to residential areas by the availability of food, water, and shelter. They become a nuisance when they live under porches, decks, garden tool sheds, or homes. Their scent is usually not welcome around homes.
Damage Skunks Cause
Skunks can destroy attics, interior walls above garages and the crawl spaces under a home. They can also dig up lawns looking for worms and grubs.
Options for Skunk Removal
Trapping: We place traps in the area where the Skunk activity is. The traps will capture on a trigger event, such as when the Skunk enters the trap to eat the goodies. We return for the Skunk removal and reset the Skunk trap in case there are other Skunks in the den or area.
Exclusion: We use special stainless steel (non-rusting) material which prevents the intrusion of Skunks into a sealed area, such as a shed, outdoor building and/or under porches and crawl spaces under a home.
