Did you know that skunks are native to San Diego County and have found urban areas especially attractive? According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), skunks love to dine on garbage from restaurants and other commercial businesses, and they love to dig on lawns as they provide easy pickings for worms and other insects that they love to eat. They only have one weapon for defense which is their defensive spray, and once exposed, it is very difficult to remove the smell from clothes and other surfaces. SERVPRO® of Otay Mesa/San Ysidro wants to share some tips from the San Diego Humane Society with the San Ysidro community on what can be done to coexist with skunks:

  • Do not feed the skunks
  • Never leave pet food outside
  • Never discard edible garbage were skunks can get to it
  • Secure garbage containers
  • Place apple cider vinegar-soaked rags around your yard to discourage digging
  • Trapping and relocation of skunks is not a recommended or viable alternative.
