Bear Attack..... Reusable???
bears came and visited me 3 times a couple weeks back. the 3rd time I had an electric fence and the bear went right through it. But, He must have found it not to be worth it as he hasn't been back since.
My question, he trashed several of my wooden frames with foundation and then scrapped and licked the brood, bees and honey off my black plastic pierco frames. Can I reuse the plastic frames or will the scent and sliva of the bear piss off the bees?
All in all, 1 hive totally gone (an over wintered 2 deep hive), a 2nd that is touch and go (another over wintered 2 deep hive now down to 1 deep and struggling) and my new package that is 1 deep and seems to be coming through it fairly well.
