Creating habitat for breeding solitary bees - #London

livingroofs.org 26 Sep '16, 6am

Another green roof designed for biodiversity in London has a smaller bee hotel. The habitat wall has 60 holes and this year 49 of these were in active use. Again the main residents were Red mason bees, although there appear to be a few leaf cutter bees make use of the smaller holes. In spring we managed to film the bees using the bee hotel. As the roof was not in full flower the bees were commuting from the ground. Obviously the bees were collecting pollen at ground level and returning to nest on the roof. Later in the year as the flowers on the roof bloomed, the bees made use of the green roof plants.
