I'm sorry I could not offer any help YW but skunks are not indigenous here it the UK, the nearest I have is my 130 lbs dog Max, I find feeding him charcoal biscuits helps a bit.

I don't see where you live, but a lot of places have animal control officers for the purpose.

I have not tried it, but I know of several members on another forum who say a transistor radio tuned into a rock station will drive them away if they have taken up residence under a building. Something about the sound waves.

I live in the upper penninsula of Michigan. I was in a mood when I filled in my location. Although I really do spend a lot of time in my own mind and sometimes even get lost there.

As for the skunk, we finished cleaning out the garage and moved the garbage bins away from it so there aren't anymore cubbies for it to hide in. The local animal control said they don't deal with them and to ask the DNR who to contact. We're going to try the hot pepper reppelant stuff and look at traps. Unfortunately we don't really have a way to block the entrance to the garage. The door slides open sideways and has about an 8 inch gap at the bottom.

Yikes! Sounds like a roll of chicken wire or window screen jammed into the gap might help. Eight inches will let a small child or a pygmy goat in.

Good luck!
