i want a group where people whp live in london and surrounding area can go and actually chat to one another about their experiences and what is happening with their bees, and pick up tips ..and to feel less 'alone' as it is a lonelyh road being a sustainbable carer compared to industrial bee keeper, even one who keeps them in the 'approved' way.. it is my intent to make it just a little less loney for us all in london.

Hannah I wish you all the best as you mention being a natural (balanced) beekeeper can sometimes feel like you are on your own in the conventional beekeeping clubs. But stick with your convictions, getting a group together is a great idea so all likeminded beekeepers can support one another. The London group is too far away from me sadly but my bees will be present as I have had the privilege of starting off a few natural beekeepers up in the smoke !

Hi, I’m sorry I post this here. My uncle lives near London and he has a few beehives in his garden. He is like 70 and he no longer can take care of his garden. I live in Germany and I can’t just go live with him. I found http://cleanallcrew.info/ this website. Do you think that his bees will be ok with some foreign people cleaning the garden?

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
