Bumblebees (Bombus terrestris) intended for pollinating crops under cover, fruit and berry crops. Young, inseminated and hibernated earth bumblebee queens, drones and bumblebee wax.Bumblebees intended for the pollination of crops under cover are sold in two sizes of family/colony:
"GIANT" colony - 1000 female workers and ... just watch!
Bumblebees for pollination: "GIANT" hive
Queens and dronesIn the climatic conditions of Poland, mating flights of bumblebees (Bombus terrestris) usually take place at the turn of July and August. After copulation, the queen does not return to her nest anymore, but searches for a suitable place for wintering, where she hibernates until early April. In our farm, due to the intensive nature of breeding, mating flights are carried out daily, so we have the necessary number of inseminated and hibernated queens capable of establishing a family/colony at any time of the year.
Bumblebee waxWax, i.e. the secretion of special glands located on the body of bumblebees and used to build a nest is only a by-product of our business – we collect only a dozen or so kilograms per year.
