Ellicott City Wildlife Tip:
Do mothballs or ammonia help to repel the skunks

This is another method that most people are glued to. However, it always disappoints. The skunk might notice at first as it has a very strong sense of smell. However, it leaving your homestead is not assured. It might get used to the mothballs or ammonia or even opt to relocate to some other site in your homestead. The point is use of mothballs or ammonia to keep away skunks is a completely lame idea.

What do they do instead?

Skunks rarely miss the smell of mothballs or ammonia as they have a very sensitive sense of smell. This is simply why they tend to leave your homestead at first. They may be scared of its predators or they may just run for their own metabolism safety.

After sometimes however, the skunk will be back. The ammonia or mothballs smell may be less concentrated making it easier for the skunk to get used to it. Better still; the ammonia may relocate to some other site.

Nevertheless, in either way, it remains; using mothballs or ammonia to repel skunks is a method that will always disappoint.

Why think of other methods

The idea of using ammonia or mothballs to repel away skunks may sound so cheap and efficient at first. However, most of us do not consider other health effects that these items can pose to us or even the skunks. Here are some of the reasons why you should never think of using this method.

Their effect is short lived_ we do not want to keep fighting with the skunk. Using mothballs or ammonia is a sure way of creating a way back for skunks in future.
Has an effect on the respiratory system_ the smell is so strong and may end up causing irritations in your breathing system or that of skunks.
They are expensive- they may sound cheap at first, but considering the fact that you have to keep spraying the ammonia so that it can remain effective makes it excessively expensive.
Makes your house inhabitable_ the smell is awful. This easily scares your friends away or even makes it so uncomfortable for you to live in.

Do other repellents help?

Unfortunately, no. All smell repellents never keep away skunks for a long while. The skunk learns either to live with the smell or better still relocates to some other site.

Conclusion

The idea of using smell repellents to scare skunks is an idea should be dropped completely. It does not only waste your time, but also your money too. Always go for other methods of repelling skunks instead.
