What to Do About Skunks Digging up Lawn

Skunks can be a real pain when they invade your lawn. I mean, they mess up your lawn’s appearance because they’re constantly on the hunt for grubs. These little troublemakers dig holes like crazy just to catch those grubs. It’s all thanks to their super-sensitive noses that can sniff out grubs up to three inches deep in the ground.

If you’ve got skunks on your property and you want to get rid of them, you should hire the skunk experts at Skunk Control. They know how to handle these critters.

But that’s not all the mischief skunks can get up to. They love digging burrows all around your precious lawn to keep themselves safe from the outside world. If you’ve got flower beds, fruits, or vegetables, watch out! Skunks can be a real pain for you. I mean, those flower beds, fruits, and veggies are like a buffet for them. And hey, they even get to chow down on some extra insects too.

Skunks are super active during the fall, and guess what? They’re terrible climbers. That’s why they keep their noses close to the ground. Their diet is pretty diverse, kind of like those raccoons that cause trouble in the city. Skunks love chomping on ground insects like grubs and worms. But wait, there’s more! They’re not afraid to go after crawfish, small birds, eggs, and even frogs. And oh boy, they’ve got a sweet tooth too! They love to indulge on berries such as strawberries, rassberries, or anything they can get their paws on

Animal repellants to stop animals.

Animal repellants are another great way to stop animals from digging up your lawn. There are tons of animal repellants on the market ranging from natural to chemical products. One should approach with caution. Repellants might not do as good of a job as the product makes it out to be. There are a lot of websites on the internet that offer home remedies. The problem with home remedies is that they will work under very limited circumstances and results may vary greatly depending on how and where you apply them.

Barricade your lawn

Installing fencing around your lawn may help in stopping animals from digging up your lawn by physically blocking access to it. Deer fences are a light, yet effective alternative and do not take much time to install. Solid fences make out of wood are another great alternative to stopping animals from digging up your lawn. They might even enhance the aesthetics of your lawn as well. Electric fences are expensive but expensive to install and require a level of maintenance. But they do the job of stopping animals from digging up your lawn.

Reduce the number of grubs

Reducing the number of grubs will reduce the number of animals frequenting your lawn for grubs. To make sure that they do not have access to grubs, look into applying beneficial “Nematodes” to the soil. Nematodes are small plant-parasitic insects that kill small bugs in soil. Since grubs are what they are after, beneficial nematodes will decrease the population living in your lawn’s soil.
