Like they said above. There are several good articles that can be found from Fish & Wildlife departments a d some beekeepers on the set-up. Also depending on your soil type, (wet vs dry) can impact how to run your wires. On wet soil it is common to run all + strands and just use the ground as ground. In areas where the soil can be very dry, sometimes that setup will fail so it is recommended you run alternating strands (+ and - strands) and still use the ground as ground.I setting up a new apiary in bear country, What is the electric fence controller you all use?
I will end up wit just under 10 miles of fence and no electric power to plug it in.
My suggestion is to set up two separate fence chargers. Use one to protect the apiary site itself, and the second one to protect the rest of the 10 mile fence line. That way, when something damages / shorts out etc the 10 mile line, your apiary is still protected.I will end up wit just under 10 miles of fence and no electric power to plug it in.
