Specialized Breeding Farm ”POLSKI TRZMIEL” started its business activity (symbolikal) in 7th of June 2002, when it was classified and invited to take place in a very innovative and unique in European scale project, which was executed by Polish Ecological Club and Branch of Apiculture of Research Institute of Pomology and Floriculture in Pulawy called ”An Implementation of bumblebees to farming practice by development of stud selected species in monitor conditions.”

This Project was financed by UNO. People who were direct responsible for the Project were: professor Mieczysław Bilinski – scientific supervision, and Mr Stanisław Flaga – national Project coordinator.

We got first mothers of buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris) that came from stud of professor Mieczysław Biliński in March 2003. At the beginning breeding was operating just seasonally and not on a large scale.

We gave all breed bumblebees families away to neighboring gardener, schools and fan nature for three years. Every comment concerning behavior and work of bumblebees was noted, analyzed and consulted with scientific guardians. For several years we were still working out the technology of breeding, increasing and equipping our workshop. We were developing our own stud line and getting new clients.

Nowadays thanks to our stubbornness and hard work of whole family we are the biggest stud and breed farm of bumblebees which works all year round in Poland. Our clients are either gardeners that hold growing of vegetable under cover and fruit-grower or research institution and higher education institutions

Thanks for visiting our website we welcome to become acquainted with our trade offer and we are pleasured to entourage to cooperation.
Dear Sir or Madam!
Due to continuous e-mails and telephone calls, I inform all interested parties that every October and November I run bumble-breeding courses (Bombus terrestris). These are individual courses, one, two or three days (everything depends on you). During this time everyone will get to know all stages of bumble-bred breeding - from preparing young queens to laying eggs for mating flights. In addition, every student always receives from me the patterns of breeding and trading boxes. Of course, the course is free, just buy 100 young queens for each day of your stay. I also provide a professional interpreter for English, hotel accommodation and meals in a nearby restaurant (Italian and Polish cuisine).
Due to my professional duties and veterinary requirements, please reserve dates well in advance.

Warning! Before arrival, everyone must have a prepared breeding room (in the first year a room with dimensions no larger than 2 by 3 m is enough), equipped with a heat source (radiator or radiator with thermostat), air humidifier, air dryer, thermometer, hygrometer, fridge with the possibility of temperature control and two light sources - red and white.
If you have adequate funds, then I am willing to come even for 3-4 months (one breeding cycle) and help you set up a professional and profitable rearing of bumblebees.
