Hi and welcome

We do have a number of forum members in Australia but from memory I can't recall any in Albany but there may perhaps be people from your area that visit the site as guests and might be encouraged to join when they see a local beekeeper in their area, even if you are just a novice so don't give up hope if you get no replies. Our Antipodean friends are more quiet at this time of year as we in the northern hemisphere are in winter, so don't feel like you are on your own down there. There are also plenty of us in other parts of the world, happy to give advice online although I appreciate that nothing beats a bit of hands on mentoring.

You could also use the search facility at the top of the page (under the Natural Beekeeping network banner) to see if you get any hits for Western Australia or Albany in particular. You will find it amongst the cluster of other facilities shown below.

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
