skunk removal........please help!!
A momma skunk and her babies are living under our front porch. We know this because of an occasional odor in the air, and now we've taken up several porch planks and found her (them).
We set a live trap, baited with peanut butter on bread last night, with no results. And we are planning on baiting the trap with cat food tonight to try again. We know that if we can trap and remove the mom, we will be able to get the babies out without danger of being sprayed.
We need to get them out soon, as our grandkids are coming to spend a couple of weeks, and their mother would never forgive us if the kids got skunked. (although we hope we can laugh about the whole situation in six months ;-))
Do any of you farm-wise folks have any other sure fire remedies???
