Hi All

Can you have a look at this:
https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/keep-the-ban

38 degrees have asked me to pass this on - "Our bees are in danger again. Toxic chemical companies are trying to get their banned pesticides back on UK fields. Last month an application was submitted to the government asking them to lift the ban on bee-killing chemicals for some crops planted this autumn.

Bees don’t have a voice, but we do. Please can you sign the petition right now demanding that we keep the ban on bee-killing pesticides?

Click here to add your name: https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/keep-the-ban."

Thanks in advance for adding your name to the petition

Chris

Bit late it's been handed in today.
Good news is it's got over 400,000 signatures.
We should know in the next day or two if the government have paid attention or taken agrochems gold.
AFAIA Liz Truss DEFRA minister is deciding later today.

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
