A real nice bear fence
One of the beekeepers that had bear problems last week sent me some pictures of his colonies before and after the bear onslaught.
He used livestock panels from Fleet Farm. They are 16 ft long and 52 inches tall. There were 6 panels used, his yard is 16 feet by 32 feet. These are the deluxe model with the bottom foot of fence, the wire is close together, and that will keep out any skunks.
This type of fence is great because you can weed whip next to the wire and you won't wreck it with the weed whip.
He also used a 12 volt solar fencer.
I will say that this is probably one of the nicer bear fences I have seen. It will last a long time and should have virtually no maintenance other than the fencer battery.
