Bee Block ready 🐝 Over at my folks we’ve set up the bee block from @greenandblueuk I bought my Dad for Father’s Day. With the hatchlings hitting a peak at 12 females emerging two days ago, not many have returned...yet. Because this is a new bee brick and the same with the bee hotels over at my parents, I’ve checked the empty cocoons for any parasites and then added a few back into the areas to hopefully show them it’s a great place to stay. One female has returned already back near her cocoon. I’ve left a flower landmark nearby and I’ll be making some buzz-bags as soon as the others hatch too 🐝 #bee #bees #solitarybee #solitarybees #solitarybeeweek #solitarybeegardens #greenandblue #beebrick #givenatureahome #pollinators #30dayswild #springwatch #naturelovers #🐝

De-webbing & Buzz-bagging 🐝 Every morning and evening I de-web the bee hotels. Love my spiders but I’m still hoping this passive-aggressive action will mean they move to a different location away from the bees. I also de-web flight paths amongst flowers that I know and the spiders know, the bees use. I’ve also added the buzz-bags into some of the bee hotels early this and a curious male leaf cutter bee was casually watching what I was up to. He wasn’t at all concerned with me close proximity to him so maybe he’s used to me from these hotel checks which would be nice. The buzz-bags are a great little land mark for a bee using the hotels too. I’m rubbish at remembering street names but landmarks work for me. It’s the same with bees. Seeing a visual familiarity can help them back to a hotel as they can get lost like the best of us. I’ve checked no bees were in the bamboo canes or locations with a torch first before adding the buzz-bags as I don’t want to trap any in so they’re stuck. I’m going to be interested if this works 🤗 #bee#bee> #bee #solitarybee #solitarybeekeeping #solitarybeekeeper #solitarybeeweek #buz#buzzbags #leafcutter #leafcutterbee #beehotel #30dayswild #pollinators #pollinatorgarden #savethebees #springwatch #hellolittleone #buzz #funwithpheromones #entomology #apiary #apiarist

Such a shame to see these wildflowers cut back too late/early due to contractor error. Green Party policy is to bring this privatised service back under direct council control.

Bees Down Under. It is true that honeybees are an introduced species to Australia and although we do have many native Australian bees, honeybees are an important part for our natural world, farming and agriculture industry. Not only do bees give us nice treats like honey and beeswax their most important role is arguably pollination. Without their work all our lives would be very different from what we know. #SaveOurBees . . . #bee #closeup #nature #winter #flowers #herbs #honeybee #beekeeping #beekeeper #downunder #insect #love #beehive #pollinators  #apiary #pollen #entomology #art #hive #macro #beautiful#apidae #sydney #beefacts #eye #insect#eyes #canon
