Getting Rid of Skunks Under the House

How do I get skunks out from beneath the house, without a professional exterminator? My 7 mo. old puppy now knows what a skunk is.....first hand! Needless to say she got sprayed right in her face. After the old tomato juice, baking soda, vinegar treatment, I'm glad to say she is smell free. As for the skunks under the house...they're still there.

If you have skunks under your house just get a bright light and hook up outside under porch and turn on every night. Skunks are nocturnal and will just leave. They hate light.

Take some old clothes that have been worn and not washed, cover them in household ammonia and through them under the porch. Skunks hate ammonia. If you feed your cat or any other animal outside, they are staying close for the food. The also eat mice and cockroaches so if you have a low bug/ pest problem the skunk is why - he eats those things.


They can be beneficial for ridding your yard of other pests, as long as they don't take up residence. Give it a try. It worked for us. We had them in the storm drain outside and they left and haven't been back.
