Every year, when apples start falling from our trees, bears come along and eat them, break apple trees, all the good stuff. Now that I have a bee hive which is about 100 feet from some apple trees, will the bears be a problem? If so my options are: have fish and game come trap it and haul it away, shoot it myself (maybe a .22 won't penetrate it's skin? High power pellet gun?), or would a ratchet strap keep the hive from falling apart and hopefully he will leave it alone? Thought? Thanks.
