A large number of skunks have found shelter in Acme.          

Skunk Prevention is a Community Effort:


Keep yards clean of garbage, wood piles, lumber, rocks and tarps where they can find shelter and insects to feed on.


Pick up pet food and water bowls each night.  Better yet, stop feeding your pets outside.


Seal off openings under sheds, foundations and crawl spaces.


Skunks WILL RETURN to their maternal dens or will lay dormant in their den.


Before sealing off openings, ensure nothing is there.  ** Sprinkle flour 2 feet circumference in front of opening.  Examine tracks after dark.  If no tracks, check back in an hour.  If so, seal the opening(s).  Re-open the entrance the next day for 1 hour after dark, sprinkle flour; allow the others to leave if any.  Seal entrance with wood, concrete blocks, hardware mesh.  (If you put Ammonia soaked rags in the den, it will make the skunks leave)
