Prevent Bears in Town

Bears and Fruit Trees

Human-bear interactions have been on the rise. This is often a direct result of the bears discovering the multitude of unsecured attractants in developed areas, including fruit trees. There are a number of proactive measures that are recommended to prevent bears from accessing the fruit.

Remove fruit from trees:

Physically pick fruit from trees before fruit ripens in late August / early September. This includes any fruit that may have fallen on the ground. 

Properly secure picked fruit: 

Ensure picked fruit is stored in a bear-proof facility such as a residence, locked shed, or bear-resistant container.
