How to manage skunk problems

What skunks attack

  • Skunks will dig up lawns and gardens searching for insect larvae and grubs. They leave cone-shaped, divet-like holes, three to four inches in diameter and may also turn over larger pieces of sod.

  • Controlling lawn grubs may reduce skunk damage to lawns. Lawn treatment advice and materials are available from garden or hardware stores.

  • Fencing will also help keep skunks out of gardens because they are not good climbers.
