I attended one of Phil's courses at Westfield Farm near Bristol 2 years ago. Highly recommended for anyone interested in TB hives and apicentric beekeeping. Hope Brinscall Hall goes well Phil.

Thanks, Ingo.

Brinscall is a great place to learn, as everything you need is taken care of by excellent staff, so you can concentrate on the course content. If you travel by train, you will be met at the station. Several people have come by plane to previous courses, from Sweden, Holland, Germany and Switzerland, as Manchester airport is only about 20 minutes away by train.

I look forward to seeing some of you there!

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
