Natupol Excel Start Up Bombus impatiens
Use Natupol Excel Start Up for:Pollination of a wide range of indoor crops such as round and plum tomatoes
Packaging:One hive with one colony of bumblebees including a queen, 100-125 workers, brood and sugar water
When to use Natupol Excel Start Up?
Natupol is Koppert’s flagship product. This standard product is perfect for a wide range of crops, grown on surfaces bigger than 2000 m2 and with approximately 25-35 flowers per m2 per week (for example round and plum tomatoes).
How does Natupol Excel Start Up work?
After their release, worker bumblebees start pollinating the crop. They are supported by more workers born in the weeks after their introduction.
The improved visibility of the hives among the crop (Beevision) is based on the way bumblebees see. Bumblebees now easily find the hive, fewer bumblebees get lost in the greenhouse and pollination improves.
Application Natupol Excel Start Up
Best working conditions Natupol Excel Start Up
Natupol performs best at ambient temperatures of between 10-30°C
Special points of attention
Natupol Excel Startup hives are comparable to the previous Class B hives. This means they are most beneficial for use in greenhouses that need a heavy amount of pollination very quickly. Excel Startup hives are not intended to last as long as Excel hives, but they are ideal if your greenhouse is in or close to full bloom and needs to be pollinated immediately.
Description: Bigger sized colony for crops with a high start up pollination demand.
Note: This hive takes much less time to reach its maximum level and the hive’s overall performance fast and has a shorter lifespan. If your state requires the Queen Excluder (States West of the Rocky Mountains), you will be sent one of those hives automatically.
Will be marked by a “S” on the box.
We recommend that you schedule a replacement hive (possibly change to the Excel Hives) to be delivered during the 4th to 6th 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.
All of the states West of the Rocky Mountains that receive the queen excluder doors on the hives.
