Description:

From the Sunday Times bestselling author of A Sting In The Tale comes this practical guide to creating a paradise for pollinators. There are twenty six different species of bumblebees to be found in the UK, of around 250 species worldwide. Bumblebees are among the most important of our insects; these superb pollinators ensure that wildflowers set seed and reappear each year, and that our vegetable and fruit crops give us bountiful harvests. With the decline in the populations of our wild bees, these beloved creatures need looking after more than ever. This book shows you how you can provide a refuge for bumblebees to feed, breed and thrive. No matter how large or small your space is, the author shows you how you can make a pollinator-friendly haven. In this book you will learn the best trees, shrubs and flowers for pollinators, how to create the perfect nest and breeding site, and the best ways to control pests. This book will encourage and inspire gardeners and allotmenters alike to make their patch more bee friendly.

Praise for Dave Goulson 'Dave Goulson... has perfected the art of turning the entomologist's technical expertise into easy-reading everyman's prose' Mark Cocker, Spectator 'Goulson reminds himself that he 'began studying bumblebees not because they are important pollinators but because they are fascinating, because they behave in interesting and mysterious ways, and because they are rather loveable' Hannah Rosefield, Literary Review
