Skunks are widely known for their smelly defense system, which poses a stinky situation when they feel threatened or are trapped. We know you do not want to be sprayed by a skunk, so if you suspect that you have a skunk infestation, call Legacy Rodent Control to handle it.
While there are some repellents available that are designed to keep skunks away from your property, their results are temporary. The best way to keep skunks away from your home is to remove their food source. Keep trash bags and bins secured, and do not feed your pets outside or store pet food outside.
Skunks also love to forage in gardens and on fruit fallen from your trees. Be sure to pick up fallen fruit and protect your garden with chicken wire to help keep skunks from wanting to stick around. We suggest you cover or secure your compost bins or piles, as well.
Skunks are common guests in any manicured garden. Beautiful fruits and vegetables are alluring bait. The best and most effective way to keep them out and ensure they never come back is by placing chicken wire covering the entire perimeter of your garden plot.

Proper Skunk Control
No one wants skunks near their home for obvious reasons. But other less-known reasons should make you wary, too. Skunks often carry ticks, fleas, and diseases, like rabies. In fact, skunks are second to raccoons in the number of reported rabies cases in the United States per year.
Skunks are also destructive, and similarly to raccoons and other rodents, search out food sources in or around your home. Dealing with skunks is messy, smelly, and dangerous.

The best way to keep and prevent skunk infestation is to identify any potential points of entry. Creating physical barriers with concrete or wire mesh will prevent the skunk from entering your property, and such barriers guarantee that you will keep your property and family safe.
Skunks also love hiding and seek things that will provide them with cover. These things include brush, firewood piles, and some types of vegetation.
