Skunks are extremely strong diggers and often choose to Den under stoops, patios, porches or decks. No matter why the skunk has chosen to den under your house, the need to get it out and keep it out is immediate. Beyond the smell permeating just about everything, many Skunks carry rabies, as well as ticks and fleas that could transfer to pets and potentially humans. Skunk smell can permeate into homes and ruin not only clothing items, but your desire to inhabit the area. Skunks can even break/dig through foundations and make their den between basement walls and ceilings. Blue Tick Pest & Wildlife Control Specialists have a number of options to help get the critters out, and keep the critter out for good.
BEST WAY TO GET A SKUNK OUT FROM UNDER YOUR DECK
There are a few choices Blue Tick Pest & Wildlife Control Specialists offers to help remediate Skunks from under/around your home:
- Exclusion Repair: Totally encompassing area (deck, slap, patio) with subterranean fence) Best forever solution!
- Trapping: As trapping is an effective way to remove skunks, it is simply treating the problem and not the solution.
- Pest Management: Skunks typically look for dens that have a food source close by. By reducing rodent activity around the structure, long term this makes the property less attractive as a place to make a den.

The first and best (e.g., activity that creates the least amount of opportunity for spraying) option is exclusion. Exclusion involves creating a subterranean barrier wall and placing a one-way door to allow the skunk to make egress without re-entry. If the skunk has little one’s present, the need for a skunk slide will also be installed to allow baby skunks a means to exit as well. This is by far the best option for both you and the skunk(s). This option comes with up to a 2-year warranty as well (ask your inspector for details).
Skunks are fairly easy animals to trap. Blue Tick Pest & Wildlife Control Specialists will trap Skunks only if the timing is right. The risk of trapping skunks during March-June is; if there are baby skunks in the den and mom is trapped, the baby’s will simply die in the den (which could be under your porch or deck)…in essence, this is simply trading one problem- skunks, for another problem-dead skunks that are inaccessible under your structure. Blue Tick Pest & Wildlife Control Specialists will help guide you to make the right decision in regard to getting the critters out the right way. If trapping is the choice you choose, box/live traps will be used to maintain humane treatment from start to finish.
