Having established there are no natural or top bar beekeepers where I live I was wondering if there were any where I work. I work in the centre of Hull and thought I would check on East Riding uptake.

Hi August C, while I haven't yet made the change to Top Bar hives, I do live just outside Malton and am interested in meeting with others. I hope it might be possible to get together sometime. Perhaps the Spotted Cow over a pint.

I'm stuck child wrangling every evening next week, but the week after I can do any evening except Wednesday.

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
