As we’ve all been staying in, critters are coming out around Park Ridge. Something has been digging in my front yard. Could this be a skunk nest?

Oh man. I feel sorry for you. ours was a 2 year long battle to get rid of them. Best of luck. we tried, ammonia, light, noise, coyote urine, hammering conduit so she could not dig. every single suggestion to get her to stop digging under our cement stoop. 😟

Your nose would tell you if it was a skunk. A friend of mine just had that happen and her house wreaked especially at night. Bright lights and music got them to leave.

Whatever it is it probably has babies in there, and it will probably be on its way by the end of May taking the babies with it when it leaves. I would just avoid walking around there at dusk/evening. If it is a skunk, that’s when it could get scared and spray. We have enough coyotes, foxes and hawks in this area to keep our skunk populations in check. I don’t see any reason to take action unless they are causing damage to your property. Even skunks play a role in our ecosystem. They eat mice and insects. They have a right to exist so long as they’re not hurting you. We had a nest in our front yard last spring (under our hostas). I saw them all the time, but they never sprayed us.
