Skunks belong to the weasel family. They are nocturnal in nature and will usually be sighted in your gardens or lawns during late night hours. These mammals have started to invade urban dwellings as there is an abundant of food and water sources available. Skunks feed on smaller animals that mainly fall in the pest category. This characteristic may make them a favorite among some home owners, while many others may not share the same opinion. This is due to the fact, that in their search for prey, they destroy gardens and lawns by uprooting plants and damaging other vegetation. They even create burrows and this makes your gardens look messy and untidy.
