Ways to repel skunks

Virginia A
by Virginia A
Our neighbor has skunks in their wooded lot and we are afraid they will wander over to our yard. We have a shed and also a deck that might appeal to them to live under. How can we keep them away?
The photo shows one that accidentally got into our chipmunk trap last year. We don't want that to happen again. We would rather deter them from coming around at all.
