We have kept both groundhogs and skunks away with mothballs.

Apparently any animals with olfactory senses greater than ours are repelled by mothballs. I poured a mix of mothballs and gravel into a hole that a groundhog was digging under our front porch years ago...and only once in more than a decade did another critter attempt to re-excavate the hole. A fresh batch of mothballs ended that attempt as well.
