I find that this idea is brilliant. As we all know, many skunk repellents available in the market are quite pricey and also chemically harmful. In this case, chocolate offers you a better alternative.

Why chocolate, then? Thanks to a substance called theobromine in it, which is safe for humans but somewhat poisonous for skunks and some other animals. As a result, when skunks eat chocolate, they will get sick. In more detail, they will suffer from digestive problems and irritation.

How to get rid of skunks with chocolate? All you need is a bar of chocolate (or more, if necessary). Using a knife, cut the chocolate bar into small pieces of equal sizes. What to do next is to find the places around your property or house to put those chocolate pieces. 

I'm sure all of you have experienced the sight of unpleasant skunk holes in your lawn or garden. Skunks are natural burrowers. These little omnivorous mammals love to dig holes to find earthworms, insects or roots as their food.

Or else, follow the traces of their stinky smell will do. Their other favorite hiding places are forage barn, trash can, chicken den, garage, or even deck in the house.

What if they do not fall to the chocolate pieces trap? Let's make it to another level. One of their favorite food is nuts. Here, peanut butter will make a perfect combo with the chocolate pieces. Mix them and then let them in a freezer for about an hour and a half. Butter coated chocolate is irresistible.

Experiencing it once or more, skunks will avoid or won't come back to your property. Of course, after they've gone, it's better to take some further preventive actions. Put up deeper fencing, sturdier trash cans, remove fallen fruits of bushes in the garden are some of the examples.

That's the magic of how to get rid of skunks with chocolate. Thank you for taking your time reading these easy tips. Stay healthy and be grateful always.
