Big Bad Black Bear, oh my.

Had a black bear visit Thursday night. The dogs were howling, but I didn’t know why. The bear turned over 2 hives. One was unscathed – I just had to put it back in place. The other had 3 (out of 10) frames destroyed. Can’t see the queen. Since there’s lots of brood (unhatched bees), if she is gone, they’ll make a new one and I should be back in business.
Time to resurrect my old electric fence. I got it 6 years ago when a bear tried the same thing, but all the hives survived. I’ll also try ratchet strapping my hives.
