About Skunks in Massachusetts
In Massachusetts we are primarily exposed to only 1 type of Skunk; the single striped skunk. Skunks live under ground and although they are more noticeable in the summer, they do not hibernate in the winter. On the contrary, they mate in Jan-Feb and are very active nightly as long as temperatures are favorable. Young skunks are born around April to May, and begin to emerge from the den around Mid-June. A typical litter can have up to 13 kits. In the Fall, the young leave their mothers and venture out to find a territory of their own. Later in the season, around December they start to den up with others, possibly in preparation for the mating season or to keep warm. Skunks are able to climb so getting up to a porch or deck to get to food is very common. Skunks will eat just about anything from small rodents, snakes, worms, insects, grubs, carrion, and, of course, garbage, bird seed, and pet food.
Skunk Removal Techniques
In most cases removing the skunks with traps is the best solution. Once you identify where they are living, closing off these entrances is critical.
