We have NEVER had a problem with skunks digging up our yard in the last
10+ years. But guess what, he was out there again last night at 4:30 am
destroying our yard. I got up at 4:30 am to get a glass of water, and I
look at the window, and there he is, like 5 feet from the back steps
ripping up the grass and making dirt fly everywhere.

Also, moth balls are now proven to be TOTALLY USELESS!!!! I put about 20

about 6 spots where this pest has been digging. Well guess what he did,

there!!!! The smell didn't seem to bother him one bit!?
