Skunk Ecology and Damage Management

Author(s): Jacob Behrens, Courtney Losser, David Drake, Jason Suckow, Brad Koele

In the ninth publication in the Living with Wildlife in Wisconsin series, the authors describe the life, G3997-009habits, and habitat of skunks. They suggest nonlethal ways of mitigating the damage that skunks may cause, including prevention, exclusion, live trapping, and harassment. Lethal management techniques include fumigants and shooting (4 pages, 2013).
