Providing evidence to improve practice

Action: Control deployment of hives/ nests Bee Conservation

Key messages

  • We have found no direct evidence for the effects of excluding Apis mellifera hives, or nests of other managed pollinators, on populations of wild bees.

'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
