Lions and Tigers and BEARS, OH MY!!

Our honey bee hive was destroyed by a bear sometime during the week of March 25th.  Here are some pictures of the aftermath.  The bear really did a number on the hive.  it’s a total loss.  About a hundred pounds of honey destroyed.  the Bee’s are dead.  the hive has been destroyed.  It’s a sad day…

Take a look at the blue ratchet strap.  The bear actually broke it!  The strap was rated for 1,200 pounds!!

He chewed the spool that I’ve used as a work table out by the hive.

  • Well, there is always a learning curve, and we sure found it! The good that came out of it is it forced us to research and build a safe place for the bees to live, and it also has gotten me more into caring for our ‘little’ honey making friends, and they are really interesting creatures!
