    I don't have any bee keepers or honey bees that I know of within 20 miles. My queens are going to have some trouble finding a stranger.

    Re: Odd Bear Behavior?

    I agree. We can co-exist with the bears. My hives are in my backyard, I have non-lethal shot for stinging and scaring bears away. I load shotgun shells with airsoft bb's. stings but causes no damage.

    I'm just saying that all this talk about plywood chemicals in hive bodies (if any) are most likely there anyway from tops, bottoms and covers.
