I havent been watching this section so here is my 2¢
About 6 years ago I lost 12 hives to coons, they pulled the mouse guards away from the entrance and picniced off the bees till the population was so weak the hive died.
A friend of mine told me it was skunks but I caught 22 coons and 3 possums and no skunks.
I catch them in a live trap and relocate them to the bottom of a 55 gal drum of water. I have been scolded for doing that on this forum. I do have a place to do away with them after the water bath, another friend of mine raises Hawks for hunting so he uses the meat for bird food.
Some folks say I shouldnt kill them but if you relocate them try spraying a little paint on some and see if they return you dould saxe yourself some gas money
