Provide perfect pollination of all your flowers in horticulture.

Bumblebee hives in the greenhouse are a very effective and natural way of pollinating the flowers of your plants. This increases the production and the quality of vegetables or fruits. The bumblebees are doing most of the work, which saves labor and an advantage is that they are less dependent on the weather.

  • Benefits of using bumblebees in horticulture
    ✔ Bumblebees provide more effective pollination, which leads to higher crop quality and therefore higher revenue
    ✔ Pollination through bumblebees is much less labor-intensive and therefore cheaper
    ✔ Pollination creates better development of crops and therefore the growth of more, larger and better formed fruit
    ✔ Pollination leads to faster ripening fruit, which makes the harvesting period shorter and causes more harvests

Use bumblebees in bumblebee hives in various crops, climates and on cultivation locations

  • Pollinated crops by bumblebees

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

  • Use bumblebees 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 hives 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 bumblebee 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.

Many professional growers use Royal Brinkman's and Agrobio's bumblebees
