Greenhouse Crops

Natural pollination using bumblebees offers major benefits in greenhouse crops:

  • Convenient and easy to use
  • Bumblebee flying behaviour ensures very good cross-pollination
  • Significant contribution to yield quantity and quality
  • Significant labour savings compared to manual pollination
  • Exceptionally effective pollinators of covered crops

The Zonda hive is completely self-contained, requiring no maintenance. It does not require feeding or cleaning. It arrives with a bladder of sugar syrup in the base of the hive, from which the bumbles can feed. It is as simple as placing the hive in a suitable site, and leaving them to it. It has an easy use slider door, which enables you to control the bumblebee’s comings and goings. The hive can easily be closed and moved if need be. All hives come complete with the Queen. The hives will last for between 4-6 weeks.

Hives are available in 3 different sizes which relate to the size of the greenhouse needing pollination:

  • Small less than 750sqm. Contains around 50 workers bees
  • Medium between 750sqm to 1100sqm. Contains 50-70 worker bees
  • Large between 1100sqm and 1500sqm. Contains 80-100 worker bees

Bumblebees are used to successfully pollinate several greenhouse crops.
