In case you don't subscribe or have the app (why not?), new podcasts appear automatically towards the bottom of this page. You can always find them at http://biobees.libsyn.com and if you use a podcatcher on iPhone or Android you can just search for 'Barefoot Beekeeper' to find the rss feed.

Yesterday I recorded and uploaded a chat with Steve Benbow about the activities of the London Honey Company, top bar hives at the Tate Gallery and the book he is putting together with gardening writer and broadcaster Alys Fowler.

Willie Robson is well worth listening to. He is a commercial beekeeper, but he doesn't import any bees and has worked with native Black bees for 53 years.

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
