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.

Do You Trap Skunks?
No, we do not trap skunks. Trapping and relocating wildlife is inhumane. It risks injuring the animal or separating it from its young. Instead, we use the one-way door.
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 usually have their babies in the spring, in May or June. Also known as kits, skunk babies are immobile at birth. They stay in their until they are 6 to 8 weeks of age, when they start venturing out with their mothers. We wait until skunk babies are old enough to do so before performing any removal.
Do You Only Provide Services for Skunks?
We provide services for raccoons and other burrowing animals in addition to skunks. The removal process is very similar, and our exclusion works against these animals as well. If there are other pests on your property, we can help.
