Talkback: How to make a nectar-rich container display

Posted: 01/02/2016 at 10:31

It seems that there's some confusion between 'bee-keeping' as in being an 'apiarist', and encouraging wild bees and other beneficial insects for pollination. 

Logan's right - some research may help prioritise the client's requirements.

Becoming an apiarist/bee keeper is a big commitment.

Friend in Germany says their count is the previous weekend - maybe we could explain to the birds that the EU says we have to standardise

It's been the same ever since the birds started reading the newspapers and listening to the radio - now they know when we're counting them and they go and hide
