Think that will stop 'em now.

Great work BSJ. Now to put it to the test. I for one am eager to see the results and pictures if you can.

Hello Smile It is all done. It was surprisingly issue free putting them in but... ahem... what I am hoping is not a total c**k up ensued. I have started another thread for it if you would like to see it and possibly offer some advice?
Thanks
B

Quality Top Bar Hives by Andrew Vidler

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
