Bears are on the rampage in Vermont! My brother-in-law had a recent bear incident where a black bear knocked over a hive in a nearby field. He came back for more, but much closer to the house. He obviously has no fear and looks like he is on a mission. Here are a few pictures of the bear in action.
The bees were very angry! But the hive was set back up and hopefully the queen wasn’t damaged.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to protect hives from bears? What have you done that is successful?
