Predator Guard skunk in running in the grass


Skunks are nocturnal animals. They dig up lawns and gardens and feed on the larvae of cutworms, Japanese beetles and hornworms.

Frequently Asked Questions

As skunks are nocturnal, many customers have had success using flashing deterrent lights during night hours. These small solar powered LED lights create the impression there is another larger predator in the area and make skunks and other animals avoid your property.

Beneficial nematodes are an organic form of pest control that can help reduce the number of grubs under the lawn. These microscopic organisms live in garden soil and consume garden pests such as the grubs that attract skunks.

Electric fencing will surely keep raccoons from re-entering your yard. Regular fencing options are no match for raccoons. They're highly intelligent and can climb over and dig under traditional fences.

Many of our customers have found success placing ammonia-soaked rags around the yard to repel skunks. The intense scent of ammonia makes it seem that another, larger predator has already marked the territory. Ammonia stations are made by soaking rags in ammonia and placing them in metal containers such as baking trays, old coffee cans etc., so the ammonia won’t leak out into the ground.

Generous applications of cayenne pepper flakes can also help to make your garden a place skunks will avoid. The hot burning sensation of cayenne is a compelling repellent.

if you don’t want skunks living under your deck or shed, seal these areas with chicken wire. Leave at least one foot of additional wire on the ground extending from the structure to prevent skunks from digging under to enter.
