I had some dead out (DO) NUCs outside my electrified bee yard to be cleaned up and when I looked out I saw Mama bear taking the opportunity to instruct junior on the size, shape, smell, etc. of a "safe" bee hive that contained no live buzzy bees. Unfortunately when I garbed my camera and went outside Mama decided class was over - at least for the moment, and headed up mountain. Junior was just born this past winter.

Urgh. Bears! I made a similar mistake last year which got the attention of our neighborhood bear(s). Prior to this boneheaded move, I had no problem with bears, but I knew they were "out there". I took off some supers with capped honey and there were still quite a few bees in them (used a triangle board). It was getting late so I had the brilliant idea (NOT) to bring them up to the house and set them on a spare bottom board and the triangle board outside so they would go back to their hives at night and be all clear for me to extract the next day. The next day I had nothing to extract and a bunch of busted up frames and boxes. J
