Raccoons & Skunks

Most wildlife species are interesting and enjoyable to have around. Occasionally though, one of them gets out of place and becomes a nuisance. Wild animals, such as raccoons and skunks, can become pests by damaging or eating something valuable to us, by getting in or under buildings. Or as often is the case with skunks, by merely being present. In these cases, one thing you can do is make a home-made trap. View our how to make a nuisance animal trap guide for more information.
