Hi, I have had a tbh since August 2016 and unfortunately lost the queen when the hive blew over last Thursday night. There are loads of bees left and as they have been such calm bees I am desperate not to lose them. Has anyone got a small colony that we could join together, either in your hive or mine.....? Don't even know if this would work so any other bright ideas will be gratefully received. Thanks in hope.

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
