Or a poodle, an anaconda, a large ducimer...sounds like the 8 inch gap might be an issue.

i don't know if you figured out how to make the garage "skunk unfriendly" but in wildlife rehab, it is recommended:
1. Ascertain there are no baby skunks.
2. Seal off openings with hardware cloth.
3. Skunks don't climb, they actually can't, but they do dig so burying wire is a good thing.
4. Of the odor deterents, household amonina is recommended. If you have old towels, teeshirts, etc. Soak those in a bucket of amonina (I'd do it outside) and then place the towels as close to the area where the skunk enters and again where it nests.
5. Skunks have notorious bad eyesight, so any visual deterent, won't work.
6. You can leave the light on and play a radio (rock music) to also make the garage skunk unfriendly.
7. Mothballs are not recommended.


Tried and true, the amonina does work.

I like this idea. For months I've been trying to get rid of a skunk that has taken up shelter in our basement which is only accessible from a separate outdoor vented entry.

I will also try ammonia.

They say it doesn't even need turned up loud, Road.
With the skinks around here, I have been fortunate enough not to have to try it. Maybe me having three dogs in the house is making them think twice.

For a small fee, PAG, I would be willing to come to the UP and sing rock tunes in your garage. I can then guarantee that NOTHING will want to be in that space, or anywhere else close by.

I take requests. RF, basement will cost you a bit more.

Hmmm, you've given me an idea. I once had this roomate who thought she could sing. Then one day she heard a recording of herself. I could probably get away with cooking her dinner for payment.
