Skunks just like raccoons often dig under sheds to find protection from the elements. You might look under the deck and not see the den entrance, but the burrow is there.
Sheds offer the best protection to skunks. Often sitting on a concrete slab, the shed structure acts like a fortress above their bunker deep underground.
Solid or precast steps can provide excellent shelter for skunks. Animals often dig under concrete steps and set up their den deep below the surface.

The Problem With Skunks
When skunks become alarmed or threatened by a person or animal they spray as a defensive weapon. Skunk spray can be long lasting and overpowering.
Skunks can compromise small structure by digging underneath. They can also cause significant damage to lawns by digging in search of food – grubs and worms.

Skunk Removal FAQ
How Much Does Skunk Removal Cost?
Skunk removal usually costs somewhere around $300. This includes the cost of labour and materials. Exclusion starts at $30 per linear foot. Note that the pricing for removal and exclusion depends on the
What does Your Warranty Cover?
Our warranty covers the labour and materials involved in the exclusion performed. If an animal breaches our work within the warranty period, a technician will come back and fix the problem at no additional cost. This is a comprehensive warranty.
Do You Trap Skunks?
No, we do not trap skunks. Trapping and relocating skunks disorients them and forces them to compete with the animals of their new area. It also risks injuring the animal or separating it from its babies. We advise against trapping.
How Does A One Way Door Work?
One-way doors swing outward, so they only allow the animal to exit its den. The one-way door is installed directly to the entrance of the den, so when the skunk wants to leave, it simply pushes its way through the door. Once out, it cannot get back in.
When Do Skunks Have Babies?
Skunk mating season is in late winter. Females usually give birth to their kits in the spring, between May and June. Baby skunks stay in the den with their mother for about 8 weeks, then begin to venture out with her to find food. We wait until skunks have reached this stage before performing any exclusion.
Do You Only Provide Services for Skunks?
We remove raccoons and other burrowing animals in addition to skunks. If you are unsure of the species on your property, we can identify it for you and provide you with a solution.
Skunks are misunderstood creatures
Skunks in Ajax
Skunks are adaptable animals that are common in Ajax and the GTA. These are busy little omnivores that feed on insects, plants, and garbage. They dig under porches, extensions, and sheds in the fall when temperatures drop, and again in the spring when they need a place to protect their young. Skunks are not aggressive, but they can spray. Getting sprayed in the face is dangerous and requires immediate medical attention.
