It will take a miracle at this point, after 10 years in this fantastic remote location the bears finally got in my yard. I used single strand wire for 9 years with no penetration switched to the new netting advertised as bear proof and bamm there in. 3 out of 6 booming hives destroyed. I spent the last 2 days putting the old single strand back up but they know what's in there for them and hit again last night. It seems the destroyed hives have joined the remaining 3 as the 3 deep hives are completely bearded. My job take me away for 2-3 weeks at a time and I'm sure I will have nothing when I return, but a clean up. I put another charger on but these solar chargers don't pack the punch. Even baited the fence they didn't touch it, they like honey better then bacon. Also put grounded chicken wire around it. I have to work with a with a shotgun to scare them off as they come in at dusk while I'm there, very nerve wracking . This may be it for me, bummer.
