Hi

so I just would like to shair another of my contraptions.

pleas note this is a contraption and not fact as yet.

so what I wanted to do was atract swarms to may garden to catch. I could not have been asked to build swarm boxes , bit lazzy that way you see .

so looked on the net to find swarm lurs, but only boxes prety much, and the rusion oppen box thingys.

so here is what I did. the resalt was I had two swarms, that I know of , and cought in the tree that I put the lure.

the contraption; "Bee Swarm Lure Stick"

so in the back yeard where I can see my apple tree I . I made a stick with a flat bit screwd to it as a rain cover. to this I stapels some material so I could put a little wax, with honey and polen, (did not have any brood)
then put two or three drops every two or three weeks on the material as well.. off lemon grass oil.

hay presto I had two swarms I could then catch!!

Any how hope that helps some one next year!!

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
