When a friend contacted me in a panic because his prized lawn was being damaged everynight! I immediately knew it was a Striped Skunk looking for subterranean snacks beneath the turf layer. We like our native animals and prefer to deter them rather than use lethal means. A by product of Concord Grape Jelly processing is the answer. We provided him with the "Grape Juice" and through his hose end sprayer, watered his lawn with this non poisonous product. The next morning he was thrilled. No Skunks, No Damage, No Problem! Now if we can rid him of his sudden urge for peanut butter sandwiches!
We like solving difficult problems and it shows.
