Why do moth balls help keep skunks away?

    Moth balls have a very repulsive smell that will keep not only skunks away from a person’s house, but it will keep other animals way too.

    Actually, according to the Center for Wildlife Management, using mothballs to get rid of burrowing animals like skunks and woodchucks is ineffective; they simply throw mothballs out of their holes. Mothballs can be somewhat effective in deterring other mammals, though usually only when they are confined to small spaces without the option to move to better smelling locales.
