Dyslexic books for the beekeeper are rare indeed but maybe worth looking at the complete idiots guide to beekeeping its a treatment free natural beekeeping introduction well written with simple easy to understand text. It's written by (not the easiest names to remember I know) Dean Stieglitz and Laurie Herboldsheimer

Here's a link to a cheap version if it's still available http://www.abebooks.co.uk/Complete-Idiots-Guide-Beekeeping-Dean-Stiglitz/9551206344/bd?cm_mmc=gmc-_-gmc-_-PLA-_-v01

I am dyslexic and I 'read' all my books by getting a computer to read them to me.

I get ebooks such ass Phil's books and then use text to speech applications.

On my iphone I use an app called Voice Dream Reader although there are many others.

I use a apple mac which has text to speech function built in to it but for PC you can get applications for computers too such as FBReader or NaturalReader.

Just search for text to speech or tts on google to find loads.

I really recommend you try it out. Its how I read this forum and use the internet generally.

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
