We have at least one pair of skunks that roam our neighborhood and sometimes, or perhaps most nights, they come to or through my yard looking for food sources. Some beekeepers have had skunks tear into their bee hives but I’ve been lucky as this pair hasn’t touched any of my hives yet, and it has been a while already. Perhaps when it gets cooler with less food around, they will, but hopefully not. Should I feed the skunks so they won’t eat my bees? Would skunks return more regularly if I fed them like cats do? Hmm… I think I’ll let nature take its course.
This pair, I think male and female as one is obviously larger than the other, walk towards my bee hives which is to the right, not shown on these thermal images.
Just thought it would be neat to share with everyone. 🙂
