Hi Steve - did you find a site ? We are between Teignmouth and Torquay - we would like to keep our own bees - but this would be a great way for us to learn. We have a small holding - so ample nectar supplies.

Hi RubyB

I have not managed to find an ideal site yet. I am always looking for additional sites anyway as I am looking to increase the number of hives I have.

You are in a fortunate position to have land on which to keep bees and want to keep them yourself. If it would be possible to site a hive or two with you, please let me know.

You could PM me your details and we could discuss over the phone.

Steve

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
