Skunk Control Solutions

posted this on Aug 4, 2016

Skunks are members of the weasel family and there are four species of skunk in North America: striped skunks, hooded skunks, spotted skunks and hog-nosed skunks. The most common are striped skunks, measuring 20 to 30 inches long (including the tail) and weighing 6 to 10 pounds with two wide stripes on the back that meet on the head. They are slow-moving animals but have strong forefeet and long nails which make them excellent diggers.

Baits for Live Animal Cage Traps The following are good bait suggestions for skunks.

  • Chicken entrails
  • Cracknels
  • Fish, canned (sardines)
  • Fresh-insect larvae such as may beetles
  • Crisp bacon
  • Cat food
