    like the title says, I am looking for advice on what I need for bear zapping power, also, how much space surrounding my hive should I have in the protected area

    I'm hoping to find a charger that just plugs into 110 for a lot less $$, but that gives me an idea of how many joules, seems as though that 1.25+ joules is what I am looking for
