Skunks are well-known and easily recognizable across most areas of the country for their very odorous defense mechanism. The two most common skunk species in North America are the spotted and striped skunk. Even though skunks can be more helpful to the ecosystem (and yards) than people may realize, the majority of homeowners wish to remove skunks because of their destructive digging habits and unpleasant odor.

  • Making sure garbage bins are secure
  • Cleaning debris piles on properties

Skunks
Skunks are drawn to human activity due to the abundant food sources available. They most commonly enter properties and live under buildings, decks, and patios. Able to live off of eating pretty much anything, skunks may enter your property looking to graze on garden vegetation, raid pet food, and demolish leftover food in trash bins. Skunks have also been known to break into chicken coops to steal eggs or hatchlings.
