Hi,
I need some help figuring out a confusing problem. We bought our house a year ago and have skunks nearby. Just recently in the last 2 months when it was nice out we woke up to the smell of skunk in our house, though I was wondering if it was burnt rubber my wife says it's definitely skunk.

But since then it's smelled like skunk again twice, several weeks apart. And this last time it's snowing so I wouldn't expect a skunk to venture out.

I can't pinpoint the source of the smell, but hoping for some suggestions on what from the house could be causing this smell, but so infrequently. Heat runs all the time with generally no smell.

Thank you for the help, it's driving us crazy!

Probably is just skunks.

They could be under your house, front stoop, garage, shed, in a window well, etc.

Or your wife is eating too much garlic and onions, and gassing up the place, then blames the stink on phantom skunks, haha.
