In this video, we talk about ways to Bear-proof beehive. The largest danger to our beehives are bears. They are very common here in NW CT. We read an article on bear proofing one’s hives in Bee Culture link here, by Ross Conrad, author of Natural Beekeeping, and have used a few of the bear proofing methods he wrote about for our hives.
We are in our sophmore year of beekeeping, and don’t purport to be experts on beekeeping yet, but we wanted to document our first years of beekeeping and share them with you all.
Full disclosure, Premier 1 supplies sent us the electric fence for free. I think its a good product.
