Hi Narustin
A small group of us around Crouch End/Finchley/Highgate with about 7 or 8 TBHs as yet haven't all met, but you are welcome to make contact with a personal email. We also have a connection with a group further East who we met at the Natural Beekeeping Conference.
Hope you can join us
Barry

Hi all - I have built a TBH and am hoping to get a package of bees this spring. Would welcome having some more experienced people who live locally and can impart their wisdom.

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

More about bumblebees and solitary bees here
