Bombus pascuorum becomes a movie queen and gives my nest the thumbs up!
To attract bumblebee queens to voluntarily nest in nest boxes, you have to use little tricks. There is a lot more to it than putting a nest box in your garden! To film wildlife you have to use little tricks. Here I have combined a few tricks for both purposes. I have many more!
This year I attracted 7 queens in total although 1 died in the nest box, 1 I accidentally scared away 🙁 whilst she was inside the nest box, 1 was killed by another queen inside the nest site and 1 was killed, lost or died somewhere. 3 are still active…..
Customers of mine get really detailed information, with hints and tips. Attracting queen bumblebees to nest is an ongoing learning curve! What I learn I pass on. I offer a first class after sales service!
