In February I posted that I had signs of a skunk in the bee yard. In the same post I mentioned that the visitor could've been an opossum. At the risk of tooting my own horn, I was right. Twice. My hive camera shows I had a skunk and an opossum eating bees on several occasions in February. They tried to do some damage, as I sometimes found entrance reducers pushed off the hives; but at the time it was probably too cold for them to lure out live bees. So they were mostly left scavenging dead bees on the ground. I'm cool with that. But if they make a habit of eating my live bees, I'll deploy carpet tack to gently persuade them to find food elsewhere.
