  • Older females bear young during early spring; younger females bear young later in the spring.
  • Litters can have up to 16, but usually only 4 to 6
  • The kits remain in the nest and are weaned in about two months, then they will follow the mother as she forages, generally they will stay with their mother until they are ready to mate, at about one year of age.
  • The mother is very protective of her kits and will often spray at any sign of danger.
  • The male plays no part in raising the young and may even kill them.
  • Skunks do not hibernate, but go into a semi-dormant stage during the winter.
  • They spend the winter in burrows or other underground burrow type dens.
  • They eat insects and larvae, grasshoppers, beetles, and crickets. They also commonly eat earthworms, small rodents, lizards, salamanders, frogs, snakes, birds, moles, berries, roots, leaves, grasses, apples, grapes, fish, fungi, nuts, carrion, eggs of roosting chickens & ground-nesting birds, mice and rats. Cottontail rabbits, and other small mammals are taken when other food is scarce.
  • In populated areas, skunks will raid garbage cans, and may sneak into a garage or basement where pet food is kept.
  • Skunks will commonly “roll up” freshly laid sod or dig holes in the lawns, golf courses, and gardens in search of grubs and worms. Digging normally appears as small, 3- to 4-inch cone-shaped holes or patches of upturned earth.
  • Skunks are a major predator of honeybee colonies; their thick fur will protect them from stings.
  • Droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter and 1 to 2 inches long.
