Skunks are hitting me hard this year. Pretty well cleaned out one out yard and were working on the other out yard hard. Neighbor beside the worst hit told me he has trapped out 6 so far since fall. 4 hives that were full of bees gone with balls of bees all over the ground around them. One hive has a cluster so small I doubt it will make the winter.
I have spent the morning putting electric to chicken wire in front of the hives in the other out yard and will be going over to do something similar to the remaining hives later today.
