Typical Damage/Nuisance Caused:
Skunks dig and make their dens under decks, sheds, and houses.
They will spray their strong musk scent near when startled,
mating, or attacked. Skunks are also known to tear up yards for
grubs and other insects. They are one of the top carriers of
rabies in Michigan.
A skunk can spray 5-6 times in a row, and at a distance of up to
15 feet to defend itself. The skunk scent which most people smell
is normally from a distance. This is nothing like being directly
sprayed. The spray can affect more than just the nose; the eyes
and throat can be irritated if in or around direct contact.
1) How do I get rid of skunk smell if I or my property have been sprayed?
Here is a formula that we use developed by a chemist:
32oz of Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)
1/4 cup of Baking Soda
1 TSP of liquid soap (dish or laundry soap)
Mix ingredients together and apply to sprayed area. The key is to get the liquid on the actual
sprayed area; this formula is not an air deodorizer. DO NOT STORE ANY LEFT OVER FORMULA IN A
SEALED CONTAINER! The formula creates gas bubbles and will cause a container to expand and
burst. An ozone machine will help remove the skunk smell inside of a house (we have professional
grade machines for rent and sale).

remove skunks from your
