Just caught a good swarm if anyone wants one please contact me pick up would have to be tomorrow, it's a big one !

SWARM GONE ALREADY RESERVED BY A LOCAL BEEKEEPER SORRY !

RESERVE

I have already caught 10 plus swarms this year around the county so if anyone wants a swarm please message me and I will put you on my list for future swarms. However please be aware that swarms sometimes appear at very inconvenient times and will need to be picked up on the day or the next day it was caught.

Quality Top Bar Hives by Andrew Vidler

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
