04/30/17 Bear attack. New Haven 44.15915 -73.1465
one double nuc, one hive down.
5 years ago
So sorry to hear you lost your Bees to a Bear attack. I too lost two strong hives to bears last July. I had an electric fence powered by solar with 3 groundwires and still the Bears pushed right through the fence. The posts were stainless steel rods pushed into the ground one foot. The bears bent the stainless steel posts! This year I have installed 5" posts and will wrap the fencing around those posts and pray a lot!! I'm hesitant to locate the new hives in the same place, but it is really the only good location getting eastern sun.
