How do bees and deer get along? I've read about bees and raccoons, skunks and bears. Now, I don't at all suspect that deer will try to get into a hive, but I've got 2 acres that are in suburbia (hunting prohibited) and border a wooded park, so I've got deer aplenty.
I guess my concern (or maybe hope) is that bees are supposed to not be so friendly to anything "dark and fuzzy" coming near their hive. While I would reassure any person on my property to not fear the bees, I've got this illogical hope that the bees will drive the deer off. That's right! Just try and devour my garden again this year now that I've got bees all over the flowers! That sort of thing.
Anyway, does anyone have any real experience in this matter? Any risk of the deer knocking over a hive if I put it near a well used path of theirs? (Not to try and instigate things, it's just the most out of site location from the neighbors perspective.)
