Bees and Livestock
- A properly maintained electric fence can protect apiaries.
- Secure livestock in small pastures or yards in a sturdy pen or with electric fencing.
- Guard animals such as dogs, donkeys, or llamas may prevent predation. FWC recommends in-depth research before committing to a guard animal, as not all guard animals are equally suited for all situations and environments.
- Store excess animal feed and feeding containers behind electric fencing, or in a sturdy shed, garage, or bear-resistant container. Do not leave unsecured animal feed or containers out overnight.
