Houses for solitary bees 22 August 2012
Children from the Tennis Club worked hard, measuring, sawing, drilling and painting to make the houses for bees. They also got the chance to eat some delicious honey comb direct from the frame. All bees help to pollinate plants but not all bees live in bee hives.
Later this year these brightly painted little houses will be placed into the western end of the park (Tennis Courts to Wells Way) ready for next spring when the solitary bees will reappear looking for places to stay and lay their eggs. The houses are for solitary bees and are filled with sticks and clay with different size holes providing the right habitat the bees need. http://www.foxleas.com/bee_house.htm
Over the next six months FOBP will have more practical activites for children and parents to do to help wildlife in our park. These events are funded by Borough, Bankside and Walworth Community Council.
