SQWIB is right skunks are doing you a favor they eat, grubs, ants, termites, slugs, wasp larvae, anything they can dig up. I hate wasps skunks can digs up all wasp larvae they want a beautiful yard is not important to me.
When we lived in town every morning yard smelled like skunks. Local animal control loaned me a trap for 2 days with a tiny amount of sunflower seeds for bate the trap caught nothing. I got my own trap after several experiments I learned 2 day old rotten stinking smelly chicken meat catches skunks. I caught 11 skunks in 11 days. Skunks are top priority on animal controls list they drop everything to pick up a skunk. Skunks are known to carry rabies.
Looks like I wiped out the skunk population I never caught another skunk the 20 years we lived in that house but I caught 2 possums. I caught the neighbors cat about 15 times but never caught my own cats, I guess some cats are smarter than others. LOL Sense then I learned possums are good if you catch one let it go.
