I'll be spending time in northern California- Nevada County and Humboldt, and then onto the the Grants Pass/ Ashland area where I'll be most. My route depends upon beekeeping opportunities, which is what this journey is about. I am a first year beek on my off-grid permaculture homestead in the coastal jungle of Hawaii where I've lived for 20 years, needing to get off the rock for awhile and meet and learn from other beekeepers. I' m quite comfortable with bees and top bar hives and seem to have a knack for dealing with cross-combing. I want to offer my services in exchange for experience with other beekeepers in other places and different types of hives when possible, as my experience is limited to top bars.

My Rv has solar power and has everything I need to be comfortable- just need a flat place to park a 21 ft Toyota RV. I'm happy to help in any capacity where assistance is welcome, and look forward to meeting others as passionate about beekeeping as I am!

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
