Calling all Natural Guardians of the Honey Bee, in West London.

I have at long last set up a Warre at the bottom of my garden.
The journey took a year and a half with a lot of research, both on the www and on courses.
The one thing that really made the move difficult was knowing where/ when to start. As a newbee I am going through a process of sheer wonder and amazement about the honeybee and at the same time a fear of not knowing enough about the subject to enable me to call myself a bee keeper.
If anyone in the West London area would like to get in touch please send me a message.

Hello - After a year of reading and attending courses, I am planning to get bees for a TBH this spring. Would love to make contact with others in west London who may be able to share their beekeeping wisdom.

Thanks

Mark

Very Happy hi to all that replied to this post.. i have been trying to set uo a south london group, but absolutly nobody has replied, maybe just a london group.. for everyone ? anyway, it would be lovely to have metings and discuss how we keep our beees and various problems and thier solutions that we have found.. and just to get to know other natural beekeepers as it can be a lonely road being a natural beekeeper, that seems to get a lot of disaproval from other conventional beekeepers.. so please get in touch with me, and lets start a group... see my post in this section.. would really LOVE to meet you all.

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
