Gillian53.............I have a goal to let as many of the people in the UK know about the plight of our bees and how easy and low cost to help tyhem

Bees pollenate our food and the less we need to import then the better it is for the UK....sorry bit of politics there.

Natter Jack....I have a BBC Wildlife leaflet called Pocket Guides   Number 11 Bumblebees  other bees and wasps...0870 444 7013

Fruitcake......Think I have seen a Wood Potter wasp at the bee hotel at my allotment

Sorry as I am completely bad with anything internet and was not aware of these problems

The name of the site is The Pollinator Garden

I was trying to encourage our contributors to build bee hotels at home to bring up the population as the numbers of bumble bees apparently has gone down by 80% so we need the solitary bees  Masons  to fill the gap
