cannot see what i posted...will try again...the bumble bees of 2015 spring and late summer videos showing HUGE numbers in Pulford Cheshire in our front gardens. interesting to me is there are NO honeybees along with the bumbles on the same flowers ! i wonder why ? do they not get on ? why so many bumbles this year ? lots of imports ? the otehr videos to date are 2 colonies that have lost their queens due most likely to them swarming due to cramped national hives...a possible reason...anyway i videod showing how lots of males and empty queen cells mean possibly virgin queen around to mate late summer and rebuild a new colony for

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
