Skunks are mammals, although they eat both plant and animal material and changing their diet as the seasons change. They eat insects and larvae, earthworms, small rodents, lizards, rats,salamanders, frogs, snakes, birds, moles, and eggs. They also commonly eat berries, roots, leaves, grasses, fungi, and nuts.

In settled areas, skunks also seek human garbage. Less often, skunks may be found acting as scavengers, eating bird and rodent carcasses left by cats or other animals. Pet owners, particularly those of cats, may experience a skunk finding its way into a garage or basement where pet food is kept. Skunks commonly dig holes in lawns in search of grubs and worms.

Skunks are one of the primary predators of the honeybee, relying on their thick fur to protect them from stings. The skunk scratches at the front of the beehive and eats the guard bees that come out to investigate. Mother skunks are known to teach this to their young.
Ideally, skunks would eat mice, rats, lizards and small creatures like that.

But they love dog food, bbq droppings, compost, trash and anything else they find that we leave around..
