Commented Dr. Phoule ‘with their extra leg, they are better able to keep time to the dance. It is rather like watching a bee do the hokey-cokey’ (sic).


Hilarious! Looking forward to seeing that on YouTube.

Saw that one first, tried to find it so I could post it here and only came up with the 8 legger story. I love today! Showed a pic of a cubed egg and told the kids that they had GMO'd the hens to lay these, so they won't roll off of counters. Bought it hook, line, and sinker!

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
