Keep Skulking Skunks Away from Backyard Chickens

Hello from the Maine woods! The temperatures has soared today well into the 60’s, and after I finish this post, I may have to hit the back roads on my motorcycle. I may or may not wear my helmet – just don’t tell my daughters.

Well, according to my reading, the black and white fluffy creature that lurks near trash cans and under porches in the wee hours of the morning can also be a vicious threat to poultry. The Mephitis mephitis or common striped skunk will devour eggs and occasionally kill young poultry, and its relative the spotted skunk can be even more of a threat due to its ability to climb. I don’t know about you, but each and every egg Brown Betty lays is precious to me, so the thought of some egg-sucking predator getting to them makes me mad.

Lucky for Betty, and for you, the skunk relies heavily on its sense of smell because it has poor eyesight. This makes it an ideal pest to control by use of the predator-prey instinct that 100%PredatorPee takes advantage of.  FoxPee is what we recommend for use against those monochromatic weasels of the night.  But, you know, as I always say, don’t take my word for it . . .

“I live in San Diego, Cal. and we have so many skunks this year. I’ve called all over town asking how to get rid of them. Everyone said to get a trap and take them to the country to release them. I’m in my 70’s and am not about to trap a skunk! My son in Seattle, Wash. sent me some Fox urine. He said everyone up there uses it but down here they laughed at me. However, it has worked for 3 weeks, but now they’re back. Help! How can I order more ?”

Hope the sun is shining where you are, and prayers for those in and around Boston.  The PeeMan
