Skunk Under House in Virginia
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.

The big brown bat has two pups and so does the evening bat. Virginia Wildlife Removal performs bat exclusions.

Arguably one of the most disturbing sights you might come across in your garden is to see a perfectly manicured stretch of lawn dotted with mole hills all over the place. Not only does it ruin the picturesque view, but it can actually signify that considerable damage is going on just beneath the grassy surface, not just affecting the structural integrity of the very ground you step on but also the root systems of some of your favorite plants as well. In addition, moles are predisposed to staying in the same area if food is plentiful. Thus, pest control in this situation is an absolute must if you ever plan of getting rid of the problem.
