Please help with a donation!

Major European beekeeper associations forming an alliance to fight for the bees at the European Court of Justice. Syngenta, BASF and Bayer try to drop the ban on neonicotinoids. Don't let them get away with it!

We need money for the attorneys and the help of every European beekeeper. If the European idea is to be alive - here is a chance for it to be for the good. If the ban is dropped all countries are affected. In the end your own bees.

Help, even if it is just a small amount.

Machine translated website of the alliance:

Original site (in German): http://www.mellifera.de/bienenschutz

Mellifera is organizing it, it is the Demeter beekeeping branch. European and German professional beekeepers, Austrian and German hobbyist beekeeper associations are on board already. Please distribute the message into your country and help to keep the ban on neonicotinoids.

@Phil: can you put this link on top of your site? I try translating it into proper English tomorrow.

Don't let them get away with it!

That donation barometer is pretty discouraging showing 0 Euros like that. Have donated though.

Hope the attorneys will be a match for those of the agrochemical industry.

Couldn't get the payment button to work on the English translation site but it went through okay on the original German site.

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
