    Throw a few boxes of mothballs under the shed, that will deter the skunks They don't like the smell

    I foresee that dog killing the skunks but they are going to spray under the house. Its going to be ripe through the summer.

    I’ve got to finish on the coons before the woodies set. E1E3A179-882A-4684-8889-8A2A83B5A9DF.png
    I’d recommend sticking to a live trap for skunks. Chances are, the dog will kill them under the shed and leave them-creating a new, unpleasant problem. A well placed .22 short will result in minimal spraying. Once they are all gone, plug the holes or new ones will move right in.

    Not as dramatic as a skunk dog, but in the county where I live you call Vector Control, they bring you a trap like this:

    https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200394116_200394116?cm_mmc=Google-pla&utm_source=Google_PLA&utm_medium=Lawn + Garden > Pest Control > Animal Control&utm_campaign=Northern Tool and Equipment&utm_content=37593&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIlMjOhfrd2QIVFI9-Ch1bsw-0EAQYAiABEgIt9PD_BwE

    you bait it with dog food or eggs, it traps a skunk so it can't spray, you call Vector Control again, they pick up the trap, and euthanize the skunk. We've tried it three times; it worked three times.

    Or you can buy one and dunk your catch in a water filled trash can as suggested

    I’ve got a go pro with a dog harness I’m willing to donate to the cause seaters. As others stated, we need video
