Best Tools to Trap Skunks!

Hi my name is Brendan Mangnitz, I have been in the Nuisance Wildlife Removal industry now for nearly 6 years since I graduated from College at UF with a background in Entomology and Wildlife Biology. I have seen and controlled just about any wildlife issue you may think of. I have dealt with skunks in apartment complexes, skunk removal from your everyday household, skunks in the attic, skunks digging up yards, skunks in pools, skunks stuck in chimneys, and the list goes on and on. I have used several different control and removal methods for skunks and that’s what I want to share with you guys on our website here at

Skunk poop is dangerous

Once it is confirmed that all the skunks are gone, trapped, and removed, the next step in How to Remove Skunks is going to be an exclusion. An exclusion is where you seal up the yard from any openings, damage or access points that the skunk or other animals have used to gain access to your lawn and garden. This is more on the handyman side of things. If you are not good at handyman or construction work you may want to give me a call, Brendan Mangnitz, and I can come to your home with my exclusion crew and take care of the skunk damage for you. If you want to try it, then keep reading and good luck!

You want to use only the best materials anytime you are dealing with skunks. They are strong and fierce, and very determined. The foam that they sell at the hardware store, is 100% GARBAGE. Skunks can chew right through this, this just makes them laugh!

You want to use only steel, metal, and concrete products. Identify all the areas in the yard that has gaps or openings. You then want to seal off these areas ensuring that future animals cannot get into the area. Take your time and do a good job closing off your yard from the skunks, exclusion work and filling in the burrows with concrete is how you can guarantee that you will not have a future issue with skunks!

And that is my How to Guide when it comes to skunks on your property and how to remove them. Like I have mentioned, my name is Brendan Mangnitz, I have being doing pest wildlife and skunk removal now for over 6 years. I have worked and trained hundreds of people over the past several years. It takes time, skill, and patience but removing skunks can be dangerous, but it’s also something that we deal with on a daily basis here. Skunks have learned how to thrive and do great in the urban setting. This is not something that is going away. With more and more houses coming up everyday, more land being constructed and developed we will always have issues with skunks in the garden and lawn. Just read and learn how to protect yourself you family and your home and you should be good to go.
