I am interested in making contact with any Natural Beekeepers in the Pendle area of Lancashire. Although I have joined my local Beekeepers society I am unsure of the direction I wish to take with my beekeeping. I have done a lot of reading on natural beekeeping and feel that it is the right way to go but would like to talk to people who have first hand experience before diving in headfirst.

Come along to Brinscall Hall (http://brinscallhall.co.uk/) near Chorley on Sunday June 19th at 2.00pm. The aim of this meeting is to progress planning for the "Gathering" in August, but there is bound to be some other "bee-chat" too.

Alternately if you want to come up to Bentham for a chat sometime you'd be very welcome. Send me a personal message to arrange.

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
