The striped skunk can adapt to human environments easily and usually by choice. In human environments striped skunks can adapt easily due to the abundance of food and shelter. Humans provide food sources such as bird feeders, trash cans, and pet food bowls that are replenished regularly. Urban landscapes provide attractive nuts, buds, and fruits from trees that striped skunk will favor. Once a striped skunk has found a prevalent food source it will look for a den site that is relatively close to that food source. Your home is the den site due to increases in urbanization or land development in striped skunk inhabited areas, and the overpopulation of Striped skunks in these areas does not help. Loose foundation vents, drain pipes, and low laying decks or porches are the most common den locations around your home. Striped skunks are very mild mannered, nocturnal or nighttime animals and when they are around you will smell it. They will only spray when they feel threatened. Dogs and cats are the main reason that striped skunks spray in urban environments. The breeding season and when the young realize they have a defense mechanism seem to be a peak spray period to. When a striped skunk sprays outside the odor can be detected through every house in the neighborhood, unless of course they spray directly under yours. Their droppings and urine leave a lingering skunky odor, not to mention a biohazard in crawl spaces. As long as we continue to urbanize and provide an abundance of food to the striped skunk they will continue to adapt to human environments and pose a threat to homes and human health.
