Abstract/Contents:Describes the increased numbers of reported skunk and raccoon problems by golf superintendents in 1998. The animals eat white grubs, cutworms, and other plump insects. When they find a place that suits them for food they tend to return night after night. Controlling the grub population is the key to discourage skunks and raccoons from finding food. The author suggests using insecticides to eliminate the grubs or live trapping the animals themselves. One large concern of many golf course workers is the possibility that these creatures could be rabid.
