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.

Our work gets burried under ground and is not visible.


Once we find the area skunks are using as a den, we measure and verify the exact number of feet we will need to exclude. We also verify that no babies are present and that all animals are mobile and can move on their own.

Trenching & Meshing

With your permission - we get to work. We will dig about 15-20 inches deep around the structure and attach a steel mesh barrier underground. This way skunks will not be able to dig back under the deck or shed once they vacate.


Skunks vacate through our one-way door. This door can be attached to allow any animals that are hiding under the structure to exit. Once the animals are out, we return and seal things up permanently.

We make sure There are no immobile babies

Do Not Block Entry Points

There might be skunk babies living in the den. By blocking entry points to the den you are potentially hurting the animals inside. Our services are performed at times of year that potential skunk babies are totally grown up and mobile to minimize any possibility that animals are stressed or hurt.

Skunk Removal FAQ

How Much Does Skunk Removal Cost?

Skunk removal typically costs somewhere around $300. This covers the cost of materials and labour. Additional exclusion, such as the exclusion of a deck, starts at $30 per linear foot. Price varies with the scope and difficulty of the dig.

What does Your Warranty Cover?

Our warranty covers the cost of labour and materials used when performing exclusion. This means that if an animal breaks through our work, we will come back and fix the issue at no additional cost. 

Do You Trap Skunks?

We do not trap skunks because we consider it inhumane. Instead, we use the one-way door. Trapping and relocating risks injuring the animal in the process. The skunk may hurt itself as it tries to escape and leaving it in the cage for too long may cause dehydration. Trapping also risks separating a mother from her kits

How Does A One Way Door Work?

The one-way door is placed directly on the entrance to the den. This device only swings outward, so when the skunk wants to leave its den, it simply pushes the door open. Once out, it cannot push its way back inside.

When Do Skunks Have Babies?

Skunks have their babies in the spring, usually between May and June. Skunk babies, also known as kits, are immobile at birth and stay in the den for about 8 weeks before venturing out with their mothers. If it is skunk baby season at the time of service, we will wait a few weeks for the babies to mature.

Do You Only Provide Services for Skunks?

Our skunk removal methods can be applied to raccoons and other burrowing creatures. While the technique is the same, some other aspects such as the size and type of door may vary. Pricing is similar.
