Several measures have been put in place to ensure this step. The most common one being:

your house since there is a shield to keep them out.

locked, you are maintaining the much required security to your property. You can also move the garbage
outside in the morning of collection rather than moving them at night.
• Trimming of trees
You will find that, most of the California skunks will easily access your house using the tree branches near your
house. By trimming them, you are guaranteed of security.
• Collect any fruits from trees near your house
A San Jose skunk in search of food will come near your house in case there is a tree fruit near. To make sure that you
keep them off your house, collect any fruit that might be present. This will help to avoid the nuisance.
• Clean the gutter
Gutters are at some points filled with leaves from nearby trees. This might attract the skunks which are in search
of food. By cleaning it off any edible materials, San Jose skunks won’t have any reason to come in.
• Use repellents to keep them off
Some repellents will work well. Skunks are the most affected animals by repellents and if your aim is to keep them
off, repellents will surely do a great job.
Still not working?
If all the methods highlighted above are not that working, you can use physical methods to confront them. These include
going after the California skunks yourself. Chase them and harass them. This will make them very scared of returning back.

cause severe damage to your house and therefore they need to be kept out with all the possible methods at your reach.
