    Those skunks can be a problem. Possums and racoons aren't.

    OT: What does a good quality raccoon pelt bring these days?

    >Do coons present a problem to the hives from your experience?

    Not usually.

    the coons in my hood will destroy a hive, the scratch the front of the hive at night and when the bees come out to defend they eat them same with a possum. I have disposed of as many as 22 coons in one season at my home yard. I have another yard about a mile away and after removing 8 coons the bees are not near as mean. One more thing if I catch a coon and don't remove the trap by 10AM the coon will be dead from stings around the mouth and eyes.
