How to Keep Skunks Out Of Your Property?

Skunks are mostly harmless, but no one wants these animals stinking up their property. If you are looking for simple ways to keep skunks away from your home, you have come to the right place. To learn more about skunk removal visit We’ll tell you exactly how to prevent skunks from nesting on your property here.

  1. Secure and Remove Any Food Sources

Skunks and other types of animals are more likely to nest on your property if they have a source of food. This is why it is important to remove or secure food sources on your property. Make sure that your trash cans are shut tight and sealed up properly. 

Then, get rid of any open food in your yard or back yard. This includes pet food and food you have left outside. Other food sources like grubs, small animals, and even snakes should be dealt with. Skunks consume more than human food, so you need to deal with any pest problems to keep skunks away for good. 

  1. Use Motion Detectors, Sprinklers, and Lights

Scaring off skunks with motion detectors and sprinklers can be another effective method. Skunks will be less likely to come back to your home if they are sprayed with water or flashed with bright lights. 

  1. Check For Entry Points and Nesting Spots

Skunks don’t just take food from your property, though, they will also nest outside or inside your home, if they can find a nice spot to nest in. Most skunks don’t like to make their own nest, though. They prefer to enter your home or even burrow under fences.

To prevent skunks from staying on your property, look for nesting sites that were used by other animals. Skunks might make them their own. Most nesting spots can be found in your garage or attic.

If you don’t find a nesting spot, be on the lookout for entry points. You want to do everything in your power to keep skunks out of your house. 

  1. Use Skunk Repellent 

Skunk repellent is a great way to keep skunks and other animals off your property. Use repellant that is all-natural and has a strong scent. This will allow you to spray the repellant in more areas and will keep you and your family safe from dangerous chemicals.

Spraying this substance around your yard and the perimeter of your home will be most effective. But you can also spray repellant in your garage and attic in case these animals try to enter your home. Citrus smells are pretty effective against skunks, this includes scents like oranges, grapefruit, and lemons. But you can also try garlic and red peppers. 

  1. Clean Up Your Front Yard and Backyard

Finally, to keep skunks off your property, you will want to clean up the outside of your home. Nuts, fruits, and other edible plants can be a beacon to skunks and other types of wildlife. So, you should regularly rake your front and backyard to get rid of these food sources.
