    Skunk problem

    Have 2 skunks in the barn and having trouble getting rid of them. Tried to use tomcat poison but hasn't worked yet, although I think it killed some in my other barn. Bought a trap and haven't been successful yet, but I'm still trying. Just wondering if anyone has a better idea. I'm using cat food in the trap.

    Had a skunk problem around the house and in the tractor barn, asked my wife's cousin, a veterinarian, what to do.
    He said sprinkle mothballs around, did the trick, haven't had any more trouble in years.

    I mean it was bad, bad-bad when they would go under the house!!!!!!!
    I keep 3 cans of mothballs , just in case the suckers come back.

    Ahh . . . I had one under the house years ago. I was still working and on the road. Wife could hear the pitter-patter of little feet under our bedroom. Persistence, persistence . . . Hate those foul things.

    Just spread the mothballs around the outside edges of the barn where I know they travel?

    Yup, that's exactly what I did.
    Remember if it rains, you'll have to sprinkle some more.
    The smell of mothballs is one heck of a lot better than skunk smell.
    Once it chassed them away, they never came back.

    My barn is 100x150 and they sell 1lb for 11.87 free shipping. How many lbs do you think I might need? Like one ball every foot or how do you do yours.

    I would probably spread them around the inside. I don't think the smell will be an issue for me. I have double walls and they get between them
