If you live in an area close to where skunks
live, then you do not need to be told why skunks
are pests. They can have your property smelling
horrible for the entire night and they can also
destroy a garden or yard if they are able to
find some sort of food there. They will also
make a mess if you leave the trash out for too
long. They are also defensive and nasty
creatures so it is not recommended that you try
to get the skunk to go away because it can
become a problem when they spray you. Quite
often these animals will be attracted to houses
because they represent a food source to the
skunk. There are however some things that you
can do that will get the skunks away from your
property. There are also some things that people
will try that don’t do anything more than waste
If you look online you will find many products
that claim to be a great skunk repellent. All
you have to do is treat your garden with the
product and the skunks will stay away. There are
options that allow you to spray yards and
gardens. There are also many different options
that come about in the form of pellets that you
sprinkle in areas to keep these animals away.
The biggest problem that people find with these
solutions is that many times they don’t work,
and in addition they can be poisonous to pets or
children. Because of this you will need to be
careful and read all the instructions
cautiously. You can try other types of
repellents that may be more effective and that
you will not have trouble finding even in your
home right now.
There are a couple of things that you can try to
get the skunks off of your property. If you have
to have freshly squeezed orange juice in the
morning, then you are already in luck. A lot of
wildlife does not like the smell of oranges or
other citrus fruits; that includes skunks. In
fact, many of the repellents you’d purchase at a
store use oranges or other citrus. You can use
that to your advantage and simply spread citrus
fruit peels around the area where a skunk has
been and that can in a lot of cases be enough to
keep it away. Another thing that you can already
have at home is cayenne peppers. If you do, then
you should try to find the den, but do not get
too close if you suspect that the skunk is
there. You may be able to see tracks going in or
out and that is a good sign that the den is
active. Sprinkle the cayenne pepper by the
entrance and that will be a good natural
Use Your Best Friend
If you have a dog then you may want to let it do
its business close to the den. The smells of dog
urine represents a potential predator to the
skunk and it will not want to go anywhere near a
predator. If you do not own a dog you can get
coyote urine at some outdoor stores and that
will also work, but you have to keep in mind
that if it rains you have to sprinkle some more
as soon as the ground dries. Remember that
skunks are persistent and you should be as
persistent as they are if you want to get rid of
them. Use these repellents on a daily basis
until the skunk is gone and then remove all
incentives for the skunk to come back. That
means fence the garden and do not leave trash
outside for long periods of time.
