Sorry, I could have posted to say it was an interesting podcast and well done, I am concious of minimising posts on this forum to conserve space so that biobees is still on-line at the end of the month.( In this respect a "like" button would be useful!).

I hear a lot of people referring to Michael Bush and although I have followed links to his site a couple of times I thought the podcast was a great introduction to his approach.

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
