I saw a skunk in my back yard at night ant the next morning there were about 2-3 inch holes in the yard. How do I get ride of these skunks.  Thank you

First find out what the laws are In your state about wildlife control. You could hire a wildlife control operator or do the trapping yourself. If the latter do a google search using "Stephen m Vantassel skunk" and my publications should show up. Read carefully. They will also explain why repellents and grub control won't work.
