The skunk’s den is typically under a low-lying porch, deck or shed. Occasionally they will take advantage of a large enough hole in the foundation of the home. Since it is a burrowing animal, exclusion must be performed at and below grade, not only at their access point, but along the entire outer edge of the structure (deck, shed, porch). This is the only way to keep the animals from digging a new burrow to regain entry. We use 2 different processes to exclude the skunks, depending on site conditions. The first process employs trenching and screening: We dig a trench 12″-15″ deep along the perimeter. We then install galvanized steel screening, attaching it to the base of the structure and extending it into the soil. We then backfill the soil. If desired, we can improve the aesthetics of the work by adding lattice, trim, etc. The 2nd process employs a product called Dig Defence: This heavy duty steel exclusion product is driven into the soil to a depth of 16″ using a sledgehammer. In both instances, we will install a one-way door to allow any animals in the den to escape. Once through the door, the animals are locked out of the den. We remove the door after 1-2 weeks, then complete the exclusion and backfill the soil. Trapping and removal of the skunk is not necessary, but can be performed if desired. The exclusion service warranty period is 2 years. (Exclusion work for opossum and woodchuck is identical to that of the skunk).
