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

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?
Skunk removal usually costs about $300. This includes a detailed inspection on the exterior of your property as well as the installation of the one-way door. Pest-proofing starts at $30 per linear foot. Pricing varies according to the scope and difficulty of the job.
What does Your Warranty Cover?
Our warranty covers the labour and materials involved in the exclusion performed. If an animal breaches our work within the warranty period, a technician will come back and fix the problem at no additional cost. This is a comprehensive warranty.
Do You Trap Skunks?
No, we do not trap skunks. Trapping and relocating skunks disorients them and forces them to compete with the animals of their new area. It also risks injuring the animal or separating it from its babies. We advise against trapping.
How Does A One Way Door Work?
One-way doors swing outward, so they only allow the animal to exit its den. The one-way door is installed directly to the entrance of the den, so when the skunk wants to leave, it simply pushes its way through the door. Once out, it cannot get back in.
When Do Skunks Have Babies?
Skunks have their babies in the spring, usually between May and June. Baby skunks, also known as kits, are immobile at birth, so we do not remove them at this time. Our technicians wait until the skunks are roughly 8 weeks old before installing the one-way door.
Do You Only Provide Services for Skunks?
We provide services for skunks, raccoons, rats, and other wildlife in which we can use the one-way door. The technique is the same and our pest-proofing works against all wildlife. If another species is identified at the time of inspection, we can help you out.
