I think Phil is still in the process of writing it.
I believe he has recently revised the barefoot beekeeper though if that might be of help.

Any word on when Balanced Beekeeping II will be available?

I have been patiently waiting since last summer for this to come out, I would volunteer to read and provide a provide a peer review if needed. Shucks, I would pay for the privilege.

I have been recommending Phil's website (biobees dot com) and all his books as excellent reading on the philosophy natural beekeeping.

Many of us are waiting too. I met Phil again at the excellent Natural Beekeeping Convention last weekend at Westfield Farm, near Bristol. I gather that he is just very busy at the moment and caught up with the Black Bee Project as well.

Thank you for the news. I appreciate all the hard work that Phil does for the bees, the environment, and us.

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
