Beginners Guide to Solitary Bees & Wasps

Join Adrian Knowles, bee & wasp expert on this fascinating day. Adrian is the Suffolk county recorder for bees, wasps & ants. You will learn about the ecology & lifecycle of solitary bees & wasps, nest sites, artificial nest boxes and pollinator-friendly plants. There are some 200 species of wild bees in the UK, called solitary bees because they make individual nest cells for their larvae. Some species nest in tunnels or holes in the ground, sandy banks and crumbling mortar while others use the hollow stems of dead plants such as bramble.
