Not really what I'm doing, but an update to a previous conversation here.
Yesterday my buddy next door came over and as he looked at my yard he commented that the skunks were digging in my yard, too. I really didn't know what it was that had been taking small chunks of my yard out in patches, like a giant aerator. I was not thrilled to find out it was a skunk.
So this morning, about 5:00, I walk outside and there shuffling off ahead of me is the perp, a skunk
Fortunately he was beating a hasty retreat.
Sooo, I went online and look up skunk scat and sure enough, the critter who had left his calling card by that hornets nest, ate the dead hornets and managed to get out some of the honeycomb out was indeed a skunk.
Not cool to have a skunk visiting the house this close on a regular basis
