This action sheet has been developed in collaboration with farmers.
This action sheet has been developed in collaboration with farmers and is based on information from extensive biodiversity surveys which took place on each of the 40 farms within the project in 2020. This action sheet identifies how best to create solitary bee nesting habitat on farms. As part of the EIP project, farmers created over 300 nest sites for mining solitary bees and 130 sites for cavity nesting solitary bees.
