Flower Beds And Lawns

It may come as a surprise, but skunks are similar to raccoons because they both will eat almost anything that does not eat it first, i.e., poultry, eggs, (shells crushed inward) corn on the cob, insects and grubs.

When skunks are grubbing on lawns, they can cause thousands of dollars in damage in one evening. Their digging typically looks like 3 to 4 inch cone shaped holes or chunks / patches of overturned sod and soil.

A skunk’s digging nature can create havoc on a beautiful garden, the below picture shows flowers that were systematically uprooted by a skunk in search of his next meal.

Skunk Caused Damage To Homes

Skunk problems are actually building problems. Below you’ll find a photo of skunk damage to a home. In fact, skunks will dig one foot down, one foot across, and one foot back up to get under a building's foundation. If the cause of the issue is not fixed, the problem will be recurring as the previous skunk’s feces and pheromones will attract new ones and the problem will begin again. We fix this type of problem every day and we can stop them for good via time proven techniques.
