I did try a search here before posting and couldn't find the answer to my question. Are the plans for making the Golden hive available anywhere? I mean the large framed single box Golden Hive, not the Golden Mean Top Bar. I did find the plans for the Top Bar hive.

Thanks for the link, Ernie. Nice horizontal frame hives there. But no Golden Hive plans...

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
