Well, you used it right well. Sent us all scurrying off to Google to
see what you'd mis-spelt.<g>
Can't believe I've never run across it before. Just hope the old
brain will hold on to it long enough to use it once before I croak.
Electric fence shocker. A STRONG one. Works for stray cats and dogs and
raccoons and all sorts of critters. I got one so strong, it will do 10
miles of fence, and for $5. I had to try it to see if it was working, and
WHEW, howdy, it works.
That's what I do. They sometimes nest under my front concrete porch.
If they raise too much stink, which they do sometimes, I flood them
out with a garden hose in the hole they dug.
Stick it in there and walk away. Fill the hole later.
That's always lasted a 2-3 years before they come back.
Sometimes they'll be one hiding under a big evergreen in my yard.
Skunked all 3 of my dogs once. Indoor pets. That was a mess.
I keep the dogs away from that tree now.
You can catch and release using a Hav-a-hart trap.
They say the skunk will not spray when confined.
I've caught a couple and just opened the trap to let them out without
getting sprayed. I don't think I'd transfer them in my SUV and would
want to only use an open pick-up just in case.
You cover the trapped skunk with a blanket and take to where you can
release it. You can tie a string to the trap to open at a safe distance.
The ones I released without transporting did not even leave a trace of
odor in the trap.
I had a wooden deck (12x25) built on the ground at our RV trailer site. A
family of skunks (two adults and two little ones) decided to make living
under the deck, between two joists their home. I tried everything--ammonia,
broken pieces of glass, store bought skunk repellant etc.--nothing helped.
They would leave early evening-we stayed in and watched them go- and they
were back before day light. During the day we could see them in the space
between the decking-two inches under our feet.. I finally decided to go
about our business as usual--sweeping, hosing down the deck and whatever
else. I'll leave them alone as long as they left me alone. We never had an
incident and I think that the saving grace was that they were so confined
that they couldn't raise their tails.. Could be they also bought into the
"I'll leave them alone if they leave me alone". So in your case, if tail
space is limited, leave him alone and don't threaten him.
