Bumblebee Colony

They are natural pollinators, collecting pollen on their furry coats and transferring it from flower to flower before taking it back to the nest. Bumblebees are now being used to pollinate crops as they are less dependent on weather conditions than honeybees, operate in cloudy conditions and can work in colder weather than honeybees.

Bumblebees are suitable for pollinating a wide range of crops such as strawberries, blueberries, currants, cherries, raspberries, tomatoes, beans, peppers, plums, apples and pears. Good pollination will improve the yield and quality of the crop.

Agralan can now supply Bombus terrestris Audax, which are native British bumblebees, in a wooden shelter containing a colony. Product M645

The colony consists of a queen and workers, with a supply of ‘nectar’ to feed the bumblebees if a natural source of nectar is in short supply. The colony alone is not suitable for use outdoors without protection from the weather.

Place your colony in the garden, open it and the bumblebees will fly out to forage for pollen. At the end of the life of the colony, the bumblebees will die off. However new queens will be produced that will fly away to create colonies of their own.
