Dr. Gary Alt Lecture on Bears

There will be a lecture on bears on January 16, at the Caspar Community Center. Dr. Gary Alt, Wildlife Biologist will be leading the lecture and will be accepting questions. As we know, bears and bees are incompatible.This will be a great opportunity for Mendocino beekeepers to ask about bears and maybe learn more about what you can do to protect your bees.

Bear Damage Photos Below:

Left, from Geri Winters in Albion: We lost our beehive the second week of December due to a bear. We will probably build a bienen haus (house of bees) this year to protect the hive.

Middle and Right, from Tanya & Darrell: This year we lost eight hives to a bear – We are in the process of setting up an electric fence…. here is the damage the bear caused, with a picture of his big foot.
