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.

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.
Skunks can carry rabies. They can also carry parasites like roundworms. Some skunks carry ticks, mites and fleas which can also be harmful to humans and pets.
Skunk Removal FAQ
How Much Does Skunk Removal Cost?
Skunk removal typically costs about $300. This includes the costs of labour and materials involved. Pest-proofing a deck or shed starts at $30 per linear foot. Note that pricing depends on the size and complexity of the job.
What does Your Warranty Cover?
Our warranty covers labour and materials on the areas we perform work on. If an animal breaches our work during our warranty period, we will return to rectify the situation at no additional cost to you. It is a comprehensive 2-year warranty.
Do You Trap Skunks?
No, we do not trap skunks. Trapping and relocating wildlife is inhumane. It risks injuring the animal or separating it from its young. Instead, we use the one-way door.
How Does A One Way Door Work?
The one-way door consists of a flap that only swings outward. When the skunk wants to leave its den, it will push on the one-way door to get out. Skunks leave their dens every day in search of food and water. Once out, it will not be able to push its way back in.
When Do Skunks Have Babies?
Skunks in Ontario usually have their babies between May and June. Their babies, also known as kits, stay in the den for about 8 weeks. After that, they are old enough to join their mother on trips outside the den. Our technicians wait until skunk baby season is over before performing exclusion so that we do not want to disturb the animals.
Do You Only Provide Services for Skunks?
We provide services for skunks, raccoons, and other burrowing animals like rats. The removal process is very similar, and our exclusion works against all urban wildlife. If there are other pests on your property, we can help you out.
Skunks are misunderstood creatures
Skunks in Whitby
Skunks are common in Whitby because there is plenty of food and shelter to go around. They feed off of the foods we grow in our gardens and the insects that live in our yards. In the fall, they dig under porches and sheds to wait out the winter. In the spring, when it is mating season, females create dens to raise their kits. These are adaptable creatures that use human habitats to their advantage.
