Thanks Gary, I haven't quite got to episode 54 yet, trying to listen to the episodes in order. I would recommend Kiwimana Buzz and also the Backyard Beekeeper podcasts, which can be found as iTunes podcasts. Both are full of very usefull info, good interviews with very interesting guests. A huge bonus for a novice beekeeper like myself.

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
