I've never had the problem, but I think food would coax them out. I think they eat almost anything. You need to try to find out where they're getting in & seal it after they leave. But make sure they're all out before you do. There might be babies too. The babies aren't able to spray until they're older so the smell is coming from adults.
I would hire a trapper. The cost will outweigh the benefits! They know what they are doing. I would ask that they would release them into an area not near civilization and not harm them though. Their smell is truly a nuisance. (03/08/2007)
One time we moved into a house with skunks under a bedroom. We threw moth balls into the crawl space and it worked. I don't know where they went, but we never smelled them again. (03/08/2007)
We called our local "Animal Control" concerning a skunk under our outer ramp off the front porch. They said to pour some ammonia on a rag and use a broom handle to shove it under the ramp. It worked and that was 2 years ago. But they're back (7-19-08) and you can be sure I'll do it again. But I may add some moth balls for reassurance. (07/20/2008)
