The effect on beekeeping of brown bears in western Macedonia, Greece

The effect on beekeeping of brown bears in western Macedonia, Greece

Melissokomiki Epitheorisi 9(1): 19-22

Brown bears (Ursus arctos) are still present in Greece, and their number is estimated to be 120-140. However, their territory is shrinking. About 40 bears inhabit the highland area of western Macedonia, and in 1993 about 7 of them destroyed a total of 122 beehives in 20 apiaries. Beekeepers avoid putting their colonies in areas where there is risk of bear damage, although some of these areas have good bee forage.
