Skunk Problem

I have a skunk that wants to live in our pole barn. It digs to get in & I do not want a $3K concrete floor to keep it out.

I'm still trying to catch the skunk that sprayed my dogs 2 times. I put a trap out to catch him, and he hasn't been back since.

Had good luck with chlorine pool pellets. Scatter them around. The trick is to make it smell worse than the skunk. lol . Some people use bleach soaked rags with same effect mothballs are supposed to be good. I just happened to have a container of pool pellets and the skunk decided he didn't like the smell and moved on.

Don't know how much work you wanna do put you could put a snake fence around the barn. Just dig out a trench around the barn about 1 ft down and place welded wire or chicken wire down it it and cover back up. A bit of work, but it might be better than 3k for a floor. Hope that gave you a bit of help. As always...JMO
