Although skunks don't spray frequently, when they do it can be toxic and therefore harmful to humans and irritating to pets.

When skunks are in fear response they emit their famous defence mechanism. It is important to keep in mind that this is quite rare. Before spraying, they often stomp their feet, hiss or point their back end at a perceived intruder. Spraying is their last resort. A licensed, insured and authorized professional can hunt or trap skunks when this occurs.
Skunks are mostly active at night. But if you see one during the day circling or disoriented and staggering it could be rabid. Extreme aggression or uncharacteristic timidity also indicate rabies, which means you need to call a pest control service immediately for skunk removal.
Home remedies like sonic high pitch noise making devices designed and marketed to homeowners with skunk problems aren't reliable. Depending on the season and the weather, a skunk might drift right right through one of these systems into a quieter and familiar spot in your home. You need to get rid of them before they set up dens and are comfortable enough to procreate. Secure your trash and cover small entrances where they might get in, seeking warmth and a place for their young. This includes sheds and any open buildings at your home or workplace.
