I am from Sweden and I am going to do my degreeprojekt on Bumblebees.
It´s about how different landscapes affect bumblebee foraging effectiveness.
We are going to set out a lot´s of artificial nests now in spring trying to get the queens to settle there.
Now, do anyone have any suggestions of:
¤ kinds of nests
¤ What to have in them
¤ How to succeed best
I think we are planing to try clay plant pots (the normal orange ones) put them upside down below ground level and protecting the little hole in the bottom (now facing uppward).
