Skunks just like raccoons often dig under sheds to find protection from the elements. You might look under the deck and not see the den entrance, but the burrow is there.
Sheds offer the best protection to skunks. Often sitting on a concrete slab, the shed structure acts like a fortress above their bunker deep underground.
Solid or precast steps can provide excellent shelter for skunks. Animals often dig under concrete steps and set up their den deep below the surface.

Skunk Removal FAQ
How Much Does Skunk Removal Cost?
Skunk removal typically costs somewhere around $300. This includes a complete inspection on the exterior of the property as well as the installation of a one-way door. Skunk-proofing sheds, decks, and other structures starts at $30 per foot. Prices may vary on the difficulty and scope of the work.
What does Your Warranty Cover?
Our warranty covers the labour and materials used to exclude the area. If a wild animal breaks through our work within the warranty period, we will return and fix the problem at no additional cost.
Do You Trap Skunks?
We do not trap skunks because it stresses and harms the animals. Trapping also fails to address the causes of the skunk problem, which may result in repeat invasions. Instead, we use the one-way door to evict the animals from their dens, then keep them out by pest-proofing the area.
How Does A One Way Door Work?
The one-way door consists of a flap that only swings outward. When the skunk wants to leave its den, it will push on the one-way door to get out. Skunks leave their dens every day in search of food and water. Once out, it will not be able to push its way back in.
When Do Skunks Have Babies?
Skunks in Ontario usually have their babies between May and June. Their babies, also known as kits, stay in the den for about 8 weeks. After that, they are old enough to join their mother on trips outside the den. Our technicians wait until skunk baby season is over before performing exclusion so that we do not want to disturb the animals.
Do You Only Provide Services for Skunks?
We also provide services for raccoons and other burrowing animals in which we can apply the one-way door. The technique is the same and our exclusion keeps all animals out. Our technicians are trained in all forms of wildlife removal and would be happy to help you with your situation.
