Remove Skunks From Under House in Waterville
The best way on how to keep skunks away from your property is make sure that you don't have any left over food on your garbage can. Sealed your old food on your garbage bag and make sure to tie it up really hard so the skunks can't smell any food at all. If you have any outdoor pets, make sure to clean whatever food that they had because skunks will eat those dog foods or cat food as well and if they feel threaten by your dog, they will fight back and spray that stinky odor on your pet.
Try not to go after them when you see a skunk. If you just yell at them, their tendency is to run away from you. Place some of those traps and put stinky food inside. Once you catch one if those skunks, call your animal authorities in your area like SPCA and let them handle those skunks. They know how to handle those skunks and they can deal with their stinky spray once they attack.
Don't even try to hurt them or hit them with something, and don't let your pet do the same thing either, because skunks can also hurt your pets and they will attack when they are cornered badly.
