Skunks are nocturnal (Technically, they are crepuscular, which means they come out about dusk and dawn) but it's not uncommon to see one during the day, especially during baby season.
Contrary to popular belief, skunks are docile critters and are beneficial to the environment. Skunks are mother nature's pest control. They eat mostly bugs and small rodents, many of which we don't want in our homes or yards anyway.
Skunks get in trouble and become a nuisance when they use our yards for food or shelter. They like to den under decks, sheds and porches when left with access and most people don't like skunks on property for fear of coming across one and getting sprayed as well as the possibility of conflicts between pets and skunks. This is when many will decide it's time for the skunk(s) to go.
Skunks are the primary carrier of rabies in the Midwest.
At Critters Gone Urban, we belief skunk trapping is best left to professionals and don't recommend skunk trapping to home owners due to state laws, which may restrict the relocation of skunks. Also, trapping problem skunk(s) by itself, is only a short-term solution. The best way to solve a skunk problem, is to remove problem skunk(s) and do animal exclusion of problem area to eliminate future problems.
