Got a call and photos today of a few trashed hives at my sons house. Bear issue he said... The hives have been there for two years with no issues until now. The DEC said if I saw them (the bears) trashing the hives I was within my rights to
off them. The real question is , is it too late to put up an electric fence (like tomorrow) or should I pull the hives. My two small grandchildren live there so we dont want bear attractants but its a great place for bees. I live
100 miles from them so its not like I can just run over there. If it isnt too late for the fence I will try that. I need some input here. They are putting in fruit trees and a garden now, are we just setting the table? I live in the woods but have
never lived in bear country.
