Re: What happens to electric fences in snow?
Hi, first off I am not not knocking your equiptment. I found specs for bear proofing beehives from the state of VA they have done extensive research on the matter. Basicaly they say you need 14gauge aluminum wire because it is more conductive. With a low impedance charger of at least 1 joule. At least six strands on the fence alternting hot and cold, starting hot on the bottom. They don't recommend the mesh type fences. From what people say it will scare them off the first time but not keep them out. I am interested to see what you find.
All beekeepers can agree on one thing, and that one thing is, that all beekeepers can't agree on one thing.
