how can I stop animals from going under my mobile home I blocked it off once and had a terrible odor when I unblocked the area the odor went away perhaps the animal was trapped and gave off the odor I had a friend go under house thinking it was a dead animal but found nothing I've seen armadillos and possums at night.......

    Lattice is fairly inexpensive skirting.

    There are lots of sites which can offer you detailed DIY information. Google “installing skirting on mobile home”. Folks have great ideas and shortcuts.

    I would still block it off but put a vent in so it can air out.

    Oh, yes, the armadillos are there, and maybe the possums, too. But they are looking for food. One thing you could do is put down Sevin dust all under your home, followed by a thick layer of plastic, and a thick layer of big rocks. A better option would be to pour a thick layer of cement, leaving access to water and gas lines. Then underpin again with blocks set into the ground two deep, then up to the mobile home bottom. But leave a gate or removable panel for repairs. Paint the blocks to match your home, or another color you like. If you have to pay someone for some of this, see what you can pay for with a chicken dinner. Those critters can sound like a feral hog and actually shake your home. If you can’t get rid of them, wear earplugs! Best wishes ☺️

    We put up a cinder block skirting around ours. Then water proofed it with Ug Lock and it has worked and looked great for over 20 years.
