Hi we have a tbh full of black bees its about a year old, we had another which we think had Italian bees but they did not survive the winter (we fed them on a very cold day which might not have helped). We need help on what to do! We would particularly like help with basic hive management what would be great is if we could phone some one up or if they could show us what to do:) We have plenty of space in a beautiful location and can help build (or give you a top bar hive in return if you give us the materials). Please help us as we are struggling a bit.

Regards.

Hi Jeffa

I'm just a bit too far away to pop round and help in person but I'll send you a PM with my phone number.

Regards

Hi again.

Not heard from you and wondering if perhaps you haven't figured out how to access Private Messages (PMs).... or maybe you got fixed up with help elsewhere?

If it's the former, it's a facility at the top of the page under the "Natural Beekeeping Forum" heading.

There are several options:-

Forum, FAQ, Search, Memberlist, Usergroups
Your Profile, Messages and Log out

Click on the Messages option and my Private message containing my phone number should appear.

Regards

Barbara

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
