Use Bumble bees in bumble bee hives in various crops, climates and on cultivation locations

  • Pollinated crops by bumble bees

    Bumblebees can be applied in a lot of crops in greenhouses. The most important crops are horticultural crops, like tomato, strawberry, melon, egg plant, sweet pepper, zucchini, and fruit crops, like Apricot, cherry, plum, pear and almond.

  • Use bumble bees in glass or plastic greenhouses

    For glass or plastic greenhouses there are two different types of bumblebee hives available. The standard (winter) hive and the summer hive. The bumblebee summer hives are used under hot weather/temperature conditions in greenhouses. The bumblebee summer hive have many advantages, like a higher capacity, more ventilation and greater production.

  • Open field production

    Crops that are produced on open fields require a different type of box, which can protect the bumble bee hive against weather conditions like rain. Depending on the type of crop and the preference of the grower we have three different bumblebee hives available for open field production: single, double and triple bumblebee hives.
