Bears love honey, and it isn't surprising that they go to extreme lengths to get some of it. They love it so much that they cannot resist raiding beehives and cause a real headache for many beekeepers. Those adorable apex predators are very common guests at several bee farms, but they're very unwelcome since sometimes the damages they cause are worth thousands. Nevertheless, many beekeepers, such as Ibrahim Sedef, try their best to keep them away from beehives.


As DHA reports, Ibrahim Sedef lives in Trabzon, Turkey. He's an agricultural engineer that works in beekeeping. For some time, he's been struggling to prevent lickerish bears from trashing the hives in an attempt to get that precious honey.


To protect the hives, Sedef tried to secure them by putting metal cages around them. He also tried leaving food such as fruit, bread, and honey in an effort to prevent bears from treating themselves to snacks directly from the hives. Nevertheless, that did not work well and some hives still got damaged.


Therefore, the beekeeper decided to learn more about the bears’ movement and behavior. He did this by installing photo trap cameras to track the bears roaming his bee farm.


While trying to figure out a way to outsmart the greedy animals, Sedef came up with a genius idea: he decided to turn these bears into honey tasters because they have a good taste for honey.


The beekeeper set up a table with four kinds of honey for the bears to feast on. He was not disappointed with the result. It turns out-, and bears have quite an expensive taste.


As Sedef told DHA, bears were drawn by the smell of Anzer honey as they always tasted it first, without even touching the cherry blossom honey sometimes.


Two pounds of the famous Turkish honey, Anzer, sells for more than $300.
