Any thoughts on how to discourage a bear from being a regular visitor to my yard? First time I have ever had a problem. I have moved the garbage can inside the garage, but he is still visiting every night.

The best natural solution I've heard is to lay some ammonia around the edges of your garden. The smell deters them from entering and doesn't harm them at all.

Thanks for the insight. Our garden is fenced because of all the deer, but I can picture a bear going right through the fence.

Yea, I wouldn't trust a usual fence to stop a bear. :) If the ammonia doesn't work it might be wise just to talk to your local wildlife guys to come by and handle it. Definitely not something you want to underestimate.
