skunk. they *love* yellowjacket larvae & this is the best
time to get the fat juicy ones.
my barn skunk seems to have died, or at least he's gone this
year. he has been living under the barn & eating with the barn
kitties for 5 years, which is about the lifespan of a wild
skunk... he has done an excellent job of yellowjacket control
over those 5 years & i miss seeing the "other black & white
cat" in the barn. if another moves in to replace him though, i
hope it has the same easygoing nature. my skunk never sprayed
in or near the barn, although he did occaisionally have
residual stink from an argument elsewhere ;)
That's good to know. Few weeks ago I accidentally trapped a momma skunk
in my Hav-a-hart and she had 4 babies running around the trap. I
managed to release her without getting sprayed. There are a few extra
holes in the lawn and, now that you mention it, yellow jacket population
is down. I did have to get a new garbage can with a lock down lid
because they were getting into it.
