How do you get a skunk out of the garage?

Do moths keep skunks away?
No, they do not and moth balls are not good for you or the environment either. If the skunk is under a porch, deck, garage, get a bottle of plain old household ammonia and some old absorbent rags. Soak the rags with the ammonia and stick them under where the skunk is. Best to do this during the day because Mr. or Ms. Skunk is napping because they've been out prowling all night. The skunk will leave that night. Close up any openings with screen or wood to prevent future inhabitants. Yes, it is that easy. We got that tip from a game warden when we had a skunk under a shed.
