I don’t know about in other places, but around here the distinct aroma of skunk spray is a sure sign that Spring is on its way. Unfortunately, here in Maine, Old Man Winter has decided he is not done with us yet, so the skunks have gone back to hiding for a while. But, surely they are out and about in other places in the world. So, we know that the scent of their spray is noxious, but what other problems do skunks cause?
“Shallow holes in the ground, surrounded by a ring of loosened soil”
“Skunks are often the cause of these clues. The soil disruption happens overnight because skunks are nocturnal feeders. The hole is approximately the size of a skunk nose. The skunk presses its nose to the soil and digs with its long, front claws. Skunky knows that just below the surface is a protein-rich treat, just waiting to be harvested. There can be so many holes that they coalesce into an area the looks like it has been tilled.” http://msue.anr.msu.edu/news/whos_that_digging_in_my_yard_skunks_raccoons_or_moles
Well, here at predatorpee.com, we approach a lot of our problem pests using the predator-prey principle. It is a concept that makes lots of sense and has proven to be effective. So, if we have a skunk(the prey), we need to figure out the predator. A little research and the answer presents: “While the exact number of species that prey on skunks is unknown, red foxes, cougars, coyotes and domestic dogs are among them.” So, best way to prevent skunk damage . . .”Outfox” them with 100% FoxPee. But, you don’t have to take my word for it, customers have been using it with success for years, just read below:
“I have used your products (for skunks) for at least the past 6 years…and they work!”

“This stuff works GREAT at keeping skunks away from our property and pets.”

“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 ?”
Enjoy your day, especially if Spring(and skunks)have arrived!
