Linking with Signs, Signs and Good Fences (There's electric fencing to keep the bears out, not the bees in ;) )

  1. The honeybee sanctuary is cool, the bees need all the help they can get. But, I do not understand why they need an electric fence. To keep people out? Great fence find. Have a happy day!

  2. How welcoming: stinging insects, electric fence! No landmines?

  8. I would be happy to give the honey bee area a wide birth. The bees have a way of letting you know they are not happy with your presence, but the sign doesn't hurt. Our state, SD, is the second largest producer of honey in the U.S., so there are plenty of bees here.

  11. This is wonderful. Honey bees are in danger in this country and their loss would be devastating. Anything to help them survive is to be applauded!

  16. Stung by the bee or zapped by the fence. Bees need all the sanctuaries they can get right?

  17. Bears can't read, so they need the electric fence.

    Great project!

  19. Well that is a first for sure. What an exciting and beneficial project this is. I did laugh about the (stinging insect) part of the sign. Good thing the fence is there to keep out those bears.

  22. Electrifying fence, I say.
    Good find, Tanya.
    What's the education - why one should not touch the electric fence or on how bees work? :
    Have a Wonderful Day!
    Peace :)
