Take a walk on the wild side…

This is what I awoke to. Bears. The good news is I didn’t have my new bees yet. The bad news is I will have to totally reconsider the location of my bee yard for this year and install lots of high-powered electric fencing. Now that they have found my hives, they will be back…

  1. Oh NO!!! How long until you get your new bees? Perhaps if you clean out the site for a couple weeks, they will wander on to another spot? I’m so sorry….

    • When I checked my email this morning I found the bees are arriving today. I have a lot of work to do between now and tonight…not to mention I was FINALLY going to go away for an overnight visit tomorrow to Maine to see Lex…rethinking my plans…

  2. Major bummer Martha, but the good news is that the new bees hadn’t arrived. I’m as eco-friendly as the next guy, but in this case, the bears are going to have to be taught peaceful co-existence. I suspect that you aren’t the first person to have this problem, so I’m sure there’s an effective solution out there. In the meantime, a few electrons may convince the bears to take their show elsewhere. Best of luck and keep us posted. ~James

  3. Wow, that’s a setback, but better to happen and not later. Keep going, these things are there to test you, you’ll get there in the end, and think how happy the bees will be, making all that honey for you!

  4. Shocker! I sure have a lot to learn about life in New Hampshire. I received an email warning from NH Fish and Game to remove bird feeders but did it say anything about protecting bee hives? If I think about it, it’s logical that bears would be attracted to hives. You must be very busy right now and I hope it all works out for you and your bees!

  5. What a strange and exotics place New Hampshire is. We have no bears here which is a good thing or I’d never be brave enough to walk in the woods. What a lucky thing the bees hadn’t moved in. Obviously all the stories of Winnie The Pooh and his legendary love of Hunny are true.

    • Hah! Had to laugh at the “exotic” description, Marie. If you make a bit of noise, nothing in the woods will bother you, even the human hunters. I always have bells on my horse to warn off wild life – two and four-footed!!
