Skunks: How to Identify Them
Having lots of holes in your flowerbed, garden, or lawn might mean that
skunks have been looking for grub in your yard and that their den is nearby.
Like a squirrel's hole, a skunk's hole is shallow and small. Moreover,
you're more likely to smell a skunk than to see one -- skunks are nocturnal
animals, and it's rare to see them in the daytime.
A skunk might be lurking around somewhere if a persistent smell comes from
under a building or a woodpile. Skunks have five toes, and their claw
marks are typically visible in their tracks. Thus, if you're trying to
determine whether the creature digging up your yard is actually a skunk,
look for its tracks. Nevertheless, it's the scent (very recognizable)
of skunks that makes it the easiest for you to detect whether one has
taken up residence in or near your house.
Keeping Your Yard Skunk-Free
Skunks can be prevented from entering your yard in a number of ways. You
can keep these pesky critters at bay by following these tried-and-true
skunk prevention tips:
- Food for your birds and pets (and any other foods) should be stored in
- Put your garbage cans in a secure location and cover the lids with tight-fitting lids.
- Keep compost piles away from your home (or, ideally, off your property
- Make sure compost is covered securely.
- Feed bird feeders securely so skunks do not accidentally eat them.
- Keep tree limbs and fruit off the ground.
How to Remove Skunk Odor
When a skunk has sprayed you, a loved one, your clothing, furniture, or
pets, it can feel like nothing will help. While cartoons often depict
a large bathtub full of tomato juice, there is actually a more effective
solution. So, with just a few common household items, you can get rid
of that dastardly skunk smell.
- In a large, open container combine 1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide, ¼
cup baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of liquid detergent.
- Immediately apply to skin, clothing, furniture, or pets.
- Any leftover mixture should be diluted with water and poured down the drain.
We advise you to never approach a skunk on your own, as these animals are
known to scratch or bite when threatened, which can spread diseases, such
as rabies and tularemia. Instead, reach out to our qualified technicians
to get the help you need right away.
