Getting Rid of a Skunk?

I have read that adding ammonia around the yard, under the porch, shed, etc. will keep skunks away. I believe I have a family living under my shed. When is the best time to add the ammonia?

The best way to get rid of a skunk is to hook up a light that will shine all night under your porch. Skunks hate light and they will pack up and leave. Keep light connected up for a few nights, he will make his home elsewhere. No need for chemicals or poisons. Skunks are nocturnal and hate light.

Skunks are night critters and you need to find where they are getting in. Sprinkle a thin layer of flour to see when they leave and block it so they cannot get back in.

If you try the ammonia, do it late evening and only on one side of the shed. If you do all the way around, they will not have any way to get out of it.
