Evict Skunks

To help prevent skunks from taking up residence beneath your porch, under or around your house, or anywhere else on your property that puts these little stinkers a little too close for your olfactory comfort, fight fire with fire (or, in this case, odor with odor).

Take several rags, rip them into strips, generously sprinkle the strips with cheap perfume --- eau de cologne, toilet water, or even potent aftershave will do just fine -- and tuck them around the areas you want to defend. Apparently, our odoriferous, black-and-white friends don't like our pretty perfume any more than we appreciate theirs!
