Does anyone have any knowledge of when the black bears decide its time to wake up and start looking for bee yards without working fences in Wisconsin?
My uncle says they probably wont wake up till end of the month. I am going to try to get out this week and dig the snow out from under wires and such and get my fences working. We got a lot of snow this year so its going to be a bit of fun. Ill have to disconnect the bottom wire for now.
It would really suck to go through all that I have to get half my bees through winter only to have smoky come finish them off.
