    Are there any methods for keeping bears away from hives? I saw a bear in my compost pile last night, and I'm afraid that he'll find my bees before long!

    I have seen other beekeepers use electric fences like those used to keep in livestock. Fence chargers are available in both battery operated as well as solar models if electricity is not available at your apiary.
