Skunk Repellent

Skunk Repellent - Skunks are animals that ruin your garden’s soil, and eats your plants and your leftovers. Here are some natural skunk repellent that may help you get rid of those skunks and prevent them from coming back.

Natural Skunk Repellent
• Keep your trash cans and trash bins securely closed and empty. And be sure that it is not easily tossed up so that skunks cannot smell it.

• Might as well feed your pets inside your house. Skunks may eat your pet’s leftovers because skunks will mostly eat any type and kind of food they’ll smell and see. Empty also your birdfeeder.

• If skunks are getting on your trash cans and trash bins, and just tossing it all up, leaving it with messy surroundings, put a moth ball under your garbage bags or around your trash cans, mustard oil can be a very great help also.

• If you feel or know that skunks are walking down your yard or on front and back of your porch, put a rag on a bowl of ammonia and place it where skunks are walking. Be careful not to put the ammonia where plants are growing and also not to pour ammonia on the ground because it can burn the grasses and the plants. Use gloves in putting ammonia on a bowl.

• Remove woods, compost pit and junks that skunks might build as their habitat. If you can’t remove the pile of woods might as well cover it tightly because skunks may destroy it. If you have a compost pit on your backyards, then have a plan on covering it with soil. Skunks love to make den on the grounds.

• Skunks loves to eat any food especially plats growing in them. If skunks are eating your vegetable plants, spray you plats with pepper or chili mint with pepper. For better outcome or if you do not want to spray your vegetable plants with chili or pepper, then you might want to plant cucumber or squash instead.

Skunks can have your property smelling horrible for the entire night and day. They can also destroy your garden if they are able to find some food like leftovers and birdfeed.

They are also defensive and nasty creatures so it is not recommended that you try to get the skunk to go away because it can become a problem when they spray you.
