Skunks again. This time under a Cabin full of antique and other Fabric. Two rooms full of fabric and other cloth items. Furniture too. Apparently the skunk died under there where we cannot see nor reach. The crawl space is low in the spot we think it died.
There is nothing to wash since it did not spray up in the house. What good smelling bomb can we try?

So far we have used peppermint essential oil on paper inside and in crawlspace. Next we tried bowls of vinegar, bowls of ammonia and paper with lavender oils.

Then we found out that the oil in the most expensive odor devices is Eucalyptus oil and pine oil. So, now we have paper with those oils both under neath and inside. It has worked inside but not under the crawlspace.

Today we made a "bomb" out of a Febreeze can. We hooked it to a long bamboo pole and duct taped the can to the pole, then duct taped the can in the ON spray position and shoved it up to the spot we think has the dead skunk.

Any other ideas? Thanks.
 
It will give me the powers of the gods. Not bad for a tiny ad:
