Phone 327-3024 By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor FALHER Honey loving bears in this area 40 miles south of Peace River are in for a surprise if they stumble on to the wrong beehive. Bears have caused serious losses to beekeepers in this area in recent years and the Alberta department of agriculture plant industry laboratory is trying to deter the sweet toothed bruins. Agriculture officials are evaluating the effectiveness of lithium a relative- ly harmless as a deterrent to bears raiding beeyards. The study is being carried out in about 100 fenced and un- fenced representing about hives in the Father area. About half the fenced and unfenced beeyards are baited with the others being used as Be sure to attend...

Barrie in charge of the said a number of bears have taken the bait from the dummy hives. Several smart bears have returned and ripped the bait out of the hive but left it un- touched on the ground. He feels this situation could mean that this technique may not be the answer for bears that have already become es- tablished beeyard raiders. But he hopes the salt will be successful in conditioning against the honey habit. Lithium chloride is also be- ing used to coyotes that have developed a taste for mutton. In a pilot sheep protection being carried out in grazing reserves in central one coyote was thoroughly sickened of mut- ton. This predator was so successfully conditioned after one taste of the lithium chloride bait that when he was confronted with a live lamb in his pen the next he became violently sick and retreated into his house. The salt is mixed with sheep wool and hide and plac- ed on sheep trails leading to sheep pastures. The capsules are coated with plastic because they have to reach the animals intestines before they will make him really sick. Since this is the first time this technique has been used in this country on coyotes in their natural it will be some time before any conclusive evidence is says Mr. Gilbert.
