Refurbishing the Bee Hotel: Different Bees, Different Needs

End time

Learn how to help bees - online via Zoom


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!
