Suggested Skunk Baits

Do you have a live skunk trap and need to know the best options for skunk bait? Havahart® recommends the following baits to attract skunks: chicken entrails, cracknels, canned fish, fresh-insect larvae (for example: may beetles), crisp bacon, cat food or bread with peanut butter.

Use a small plate to place the skunk bait at the end of the live skunk trap.


Ultimate Skunk Protection

Now that you’ve trapped your skunk, use a repellent to stop them from coming back. Using a combination of Havahart® traps and repellents gives you the MAXIMUM protection you need to keep your yard free of animal intruders!

Critter Ridder® animal repellent has dual application methods - liquid and granular - to give multi-surface or perimeter barrier protection.
