Well I say DEATH to all varmets that bother bees!
In the spring of 2003 I did away with twenty two (22) coons in my beeyard after they did away with 12 hives. I have caught 5 in my front yeard this winter.
They are "cute" but can bee distructive and if cornered they can hurt you, I have watched them try to get out of a trap and it is amazing to see how they use their "hands" to try to open the trap.
I just foud out lately that I can sell them to a fur dealer for 10 bux and I dont have to skin them, oh well day late and $ short.
