For years I never had any problems with skunks. The past two weeks I've been over run with them. I have killed four and had two more lurking and I just got one in a trap. Today I was talking to some friends, who live about 15 miles away fom me, and a neighbor who have said they have suddenly had a lot of skunks around their properties. What's up? Why all of a sudden do there seem to be so many skunks around?
