If I put fresh fruit and vegetable scraps in my mulch pile, would it attract skunks or snakes?

Fruit and vegetable scraps probably would not attract animals, says Dennis Bejot, director of the Douglas County extension service.

"We would not recommended putting meat or fat. That will attract wild animals," Bejot said.

However, he said fruits and vegetable scraps take longer to break down into mulch than grass clippings and leaves.
