Skunks are actually quite cute critters with their bushy tail and white stripe. They’re kind of small. Normally smaller than most adult house cats.
Unlike cats, skunks are not very good at climbing or jumping, and they pack a powerful, nasty smelling spray. This spray tends to cling to items very well and most items that are sprayed will need to be thrown out.
You likely have heard that you should use tomate juice to get rid of the smell of skunk spray, but all that really does is somewhat cover up the smell with tomatoes. A better, but lesser known, solution exists. It’s a mixture of baking soda, dish liquid, and hydrogen peroxide. This will neutralize the smell, get rid of any oils, and kill any germs. The best part is that it gets you smelling better without leaving you smelling like tomatoes.
A common problem people have with skunks is that they dig in their yard. This is usually to get worms and grubs, and when your yard has plenty of food, skunks will search for a home nearby, often turning the area under your porch or deck into their home.
Your porch or deck is also a common place for skunks to take shelter from the winter and to have their babies.
