As Phil's February course at Brinscall has unfortunately been cancelled, the next nearest option is this weekend at the Middlewood Trust near Lancaster. See poster for details.

A pity as Phil's courses are excellent. Was it due to inadequate number of participants?

Sadly, yes.

Phil's courses are indeed excellent. I've been on quite a few over the years and helped to run them at Brinscall Hall. My courses are pretty good too..... Very Happy This one has enough attendees to definitely run.

I would encourage UK members to support Phil by attending courses( they are very reasonably priced ) and recommending them to other potential or seasoned beekeepers wanting to learn more about balanced bee care. I am currently half way through reading Phil's new book, thoughtfully layed out and full of excellent practical advice.

Thanks for your support, and I would also like to endorse John's courses, having taught alongside him on several occasions.

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
