Skunk Grubbing

Ever notice small quarter size holes in your lawn. Lots of customers first thoughts are oh no I got moles or voles, when indeed skunks are the culprits. This damage, commonly known as skunk grubbing occurs when skunks are digging in the lawn in search of, yup you guessed it, grubs. These are a favorite food of the skunk and a lawn that has a healthy population of grubs, will most likely also be visited by skunks. In the course of a few nights, a grubbing skunk can damage lawns in excess of 1 acre. These unsightly holes will continue to grow until the offending skunks are removed. Raccoons will also dig up lawns for grubs, but they tend to roll back entire sections of turf, compared to just the small quarter sized holes created by skunks. If grubbing skunks are destroying the lawn that you put so much effort into keeping manicured give us a call.
