Skunks expel that awful odor as a defense mechanism against predators when they feel intimidated. They can spray up to 15 feet! This odor is extremely hard to get rid of, and honestly, most removal remedies just do not work. As others will tell you, skunk odor can take a very long time to get rid of. If you get spray in your eyes, you will experience a bad burning sensation and often temporary blindness. Sprayed clothing is usually discarded as the smell is very hard to remove.
Skunks living in a crawlspace on your property will defecate, urinate and contaminate the insulation and soil. These droppings should be removed in the clean-up process to prevent diseases and parasites. They also love to tear duct lines and use the insulation in their dens. Skunks often burrow under woodpiles and under piles of leaves In addition to burrowing under your leaves, these creatures can oftentimes make their way into your garden as well and eat all of your produce and vegetables.
These critters often take up residence in the Pigeon Forge area under sheds and in hot tubs. Since sheds are often elevated off the ground, this is a picture perfect place for raising a family. If there is an obvious shelter to have and raise babies, a skunk will seek it!
