Guests at a holiday park near Lancaster are being asked to keep their eyes open for thousands of extra visitors winging their way to its grounds this year.
Staff at Moss Wood caravan park in Cockerham hopes that all the new arrivals will be “solitary bees”, a species said by nature bodies to be under serious threat.
An habitation project has seen the park create thousands of tiny timber tunnels bored in hardwood logs which are now positioned in piles throughout the grounds.
According to park owner Henry Wild, Moss Wood is now a safe haven where the harmless, non-aggressive insects can be helped to re-build their numbers.
The tunnels provide perfect homes in which solitary bees can make cells of nests for larvae. With the bees keeping busy until late autumn, Henry hopes park guests will report sightings which will confirm their nesting activity.
