Bumblebees can probably do the pollinating job for less money than you can hire it done!! Bumblebees will work 7 days a week!! No time off!! No sick days!! No payroll taxes!! Never too busy to pollinate, bumblebees seem to know exactly when the pollen is ready, resulting in excellent fruit setting. Order by Thursday noon – for next week delivery.
Bumblebees can probably do a better job pollinating your tomato or pepper flowers than you!! Studies show that pollinating tomatoes with bumblebees will give a 3% – 5% increase in yield, with a 5% – 8% increase in fruit size!!
A well cared for, Class ‘A’ hive can last 8 – 13 weeks. We recommend that you schedule a replacement hive to be delivered during the 6th to 10th week. (The larger the square footage – the more frequently you may need to reorder.) This will allow time for the new hive to become acclimated to your greenhouse before the old hive gives out.
