Skunks seem to be an issue all around the valley. My 14 year old was sprayed by a skunk and it was awful!!

Yesterday around 5pm while cooking dinner I thought I smelled skunk? NO ... it wasn't my cooking. Jackson and Shaylee were outside playing, so I ran outside to make sure one of them hadn't been sprayed. They were fine and had not seen any skunk, but they could smell it!

Normally .... the skunks don't come through that early in the day. It's more towards the evening and overnight. This has me worried that someone is going to get sprayed again!

Is there anything we can do to keep them away from our house and our land?
