How do Skunks Get Under Your Deck
Skunks are not good climbers. However, they are good a digging holes. They will dig holes underneath your property to make a nice den for them to live in. One of the common areas where they will do this is underneath your deck.
In the process of getting under your deck, they may cause some costly damages. They can cause damages to the wood, and to the landscaping around the deck. Of course there is always the unlucky chance that you or even your domestic animals will come across the skunk and get sprayed. The smell is very difficult to get off, and which can take a lot of time out of your busy day.
