We have received alot of calls recently for skunk issues: digging in the yard, hanging out underneath the porch, etc. With the onset of winter, this issue won't go away. Skunks are not true hibernators in the winter,
they do den up for winter. Skunks sleep more but will come out of their dens to forage for food. Over winter, multiple females, as many as 12, huddle together. Often, the same winter den is repeatedly used. Now is the time to take care of your problem.
