Refurbishing the Bee Hotel: Different Bees, Different Needs
|Free webinar with Dr Linda Birkin and Isobel Sexton report their findings on what does and doesn’t work when it comes to creating successful bee hotels.
Putting up a bee hotel is a popular – and accessible – wildlife gardening activity, but typical designs are very focused on the needs of a small sub-set of solitary bees. Buzz Club projects are looking to expand the ecological value of the Hymenopteran hotel to provide support for a much wider range of insects. They also aim to identify and avoid possible pitfalls and problems when using these in real garden environments!
