The first step is to apply some Mole-Max repellent to the area. Skunks or any other rodents won’t go near the area. You’ll want to apply Milky Spore to the area and water it in with a full inch of water twice a year for three years (Spring and September). After that the disease will reproduce itself in the soil and lasts for at least 20 years. None of this will affect you well. HERE’S a link to more on grub control and ANOTHER on Mole Max.
