Bear Fence

Protect your hives from hungry bears

Compensation is available through SCIC for bear damage to bee hives and huts, loss of honey production, and loss of honey bees and leaf cutter bee larvae. SBDC calls the program “Bear Fence”, and each year, a member of the SBDC Board is appointed as the Bear Fence Program Coordinator to assist producers of all sizes with their claims.
