I have a few skunks every so often...but this year I have a abundance of signs in two beeyards. One is nuc yard behind my house. Last time I shot the skunk....bullet went down back and pissed him off real bad, chased me in house...sprayed everywhere including around house, needless to say no one in house was happy, so shooting is NOT a option. Used live trap once....bad idea dont need to elaborate here! A few yrs back I used red devil lye...works great, but now off market. Is sodium perixod (lye) that is available now the same as red devil lye. Just little around hives took care of any problem..was wondering if anyone had used the stuff now available or had any other ideas better than what I tried!
