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.

The Problem With Skunks
When skunks become alarmed or threatened by a person or animal they spray as a defensive weapon. Skunk spray can be long lasting and overpowering.
Skunks can compromise small structure by digging underneath. They can also cause significant damage to lawns by digging in search of food – grubs and worms.
Skunks can carry rabies. They can also carry parasites like roundworms. Some skunks carry ticks, mites and fleas which can also be harmful to humans and pets.
Skunk Removal FAQ
How Much Does Skunk Removal Cost?
A typical skunk removal job costs about $300. This includes the cost of labour, materials, and the installation of the one-way door. Skunk-proofing a deck or shed starts at $30 per linear foot. Pricing may vary depending on the size and difficulty of the dig.
What does Your Warranty Cover?
Our warranty covers the excluded space. This means that if an animal breaches our work, we will return and fix the issue at no extra cost. A sealed entry point, for example, will be covered by our warranty. This is a comprehensive warranty of up to 2 years.
Do You Trap Skunks?
Trapping and relocating skunks risks harming the animals, so we choose to use the one-way door instead. In Ontario, it is illegal to relocate skunks further than a kilometer away. Trapping also fails to prevent future invasions. Using the one-way door evicts the animals safely and forces them to relocate within the territory they know well.
How Does A One Way Door Work?
The one-way door only swings outward, so it lets the animals out of their dens but prevents them from coming back. When a skunk wants to leave its den to find food, it simply pushes on the door to get out. When it tries to come back in, the door remains shut and the animal finds another place to live.
When Do Skunks Have Babies?
Skunks usually have their babies in the spring between May and June. Skunk babies, or kits, are immobile for 6 to 8 weeks after birth, so we take extra care no to disturb them at this time. If it is skunk baby season, our technicians wait until the kits are old enough to leave the den before performing any exclusion work.
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.
