How do you deal with bears? We've had a portable electric netting fence around our bee yard to no avail. Recently we put up an outer single wire strand baited with bacon bait but the bear went through that as well. This is in lowbush blueberry.
Build a goat fence, that is build a fence that a goat won't climb out of. Then place 3 strands of electrified barbedwire at 1 ft above ground level, 6 inches above the top of the goat fence, and 1 in between.
My fence is made of 8 ft posts secured 2 ft into the ground with rails spaced at ground level, 30 inches, and 60 inches above the bottom rail. 2X4 welded wire is secured to the post and rails. If bears are a problem add the barbed wire as indicated.
Any bear attempting to climb over the fence will expose themselves to getting shocked at up to 3 areas of the body at one time, and most probably to the belly. It is the electric shock to the belly that is the most effective in deterring bears.
