Frequently Asked Questions

Want to identify a bee? Found a nest? Or just interested? Our FAQ page has the answers to many common questions. Please take a look to see if the FAQ section can help before contacting us.

During bumblebee season, we receive a high volume of enquiries: this is wonderful, however, as a small organisation we may not be able to respond to all enquiries we receive.

“Bumblebees are key factors in our wildlife. If they disappear many of our plants will not bear fruit. I am proud to be associated with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust”.
