Skunks are mid-sized black and white mammals known for their ability to spray a strong, foul smell when they are in danger. Skunks are omnivores, meaning that they feed off of both plants and animals in the wild. Active during the night, skunks can destroy your property in several ways. Skunks will dig up sections of grass to pull up bulbs and other plants. If you have pets, they are at risk of being sprayed by a squirrel.

Several species of skunks live in North America, and their coats feature different patterns of white stripes, spots, or swirls on black fur. About the size of a house cat, skunks have small, triangular heads, long bodies, and muscular legs with sharp claws used for digging. Their long, bushy tails are often also marked with varying white patterns or stripes.
Skunks typically come out at night to forage for fruits, berries, eggs, insects, worms, and small animals. As opportunistic omnivores, they will not pass up the chance to eat spilled birdseed, garbage, or garden vegetables, as well.
Wooded areas with plenty of vegetation are the preferred habitat of wild skunks. Easily accessible food and water sources are their top priorities, so skunks can adapt to many other environments, including residential areas, as long as these things are present. They usually make their burrows in the abandoned dens of other animals but will also search for suitable logs, brush piles, or abandoned buildings in which to dig out comfortable nests.
