Pollination of crops

Pollination or tomato pollination using bumble bees hives is crucial for the growth of the crop. When no pollination takes place, crops, and especially the fruit, do not develop. Pollination ensures better development of crop growth, producing more and larger fruits. In addition, good tomato pollination results in faster ripening of the fruit, resulting in a shorter harvesting period. By pollinating bumble bees and using bumble bee hives, pollen from the stamens is transported to the pistil of the flower. In the past, pollination was often done using a Vibri tomato vibrator. Therefore pollination with bumble bees in a hive is not labour-intensive compared to this work. 

Buy a bumble bee hive

When buying a bumble bee hive, pay attention to which kind of bumble bee hive you order. Each crop has different needs, so there are different types of bumble bees hives available for each crop. Bumble bee hives are also available for different greenhouses. The bumble bee population is the same in that case, but the material of bumble bee hive is different.

Placing bumble bee hives

Place the bumble bee hive in a place protected from the sun and moisture, between the crops on the path. When using multiple bumble bee hives in a row, turn them around with the flight openings. Our specialists have listed all the tips for placing bumble bee hives. 

The usage of bumble bees

When you place bumble bee hives in the greenhouse, you are dealing with a living product. It is therefore important that you take a number of steps into account. For example, you should use the bumble bee hive within 18 hours of receipt. This way you achieve the highest efficiency. Our specialists will explain more about the use of bumble bee hives in an article.

Quality control of bumble bee colonies

Always check the quality of the bumble bees yourself before releasing them. A handy quality control protocol is available for this. If you notice any abnormalities, always report your complaint within 24 hours so that an adequate response can be given.
