Black bears?

Black bears?

I've thought about getting back into beekeeping on a small scale (2-4 hives), but on the property I live on now I have bears occasionally wandering through. It backs up to forest which backs upto the Appalachian trail.

The bears aren't a problem currently (I only know they are in the area because of the game cameras), but I am am careful with trash and bird feeders – my neighbors have had visits in past years.

I can easily set up a fenced bee yard inside my fenced (privacy/5' wire) dog yard. I just don't know how aggressive I need to be, or if I am just attracting bears to my house.

Thoughts? Is an electric fence a must?
