Rodents and Skunks
Rodents, including skunks are attracted to meat and dairy scraps specifically. Make sure your backyard composter is free of meat and dairy (these items can go in your green bin). If you are not putting meat and dairy in your composter, but still having problems you can try placing a chicken wire mesh underneath your composter to prevent the critters from tunnelling underneath your composter for a snack.
