Why native bees?
For many crops, native bees may be more effective pollinators than European Honey Bees. Additionally, unlike honey bees, there is evidence that native bees can survive in greenhouses under certain conditions for extended periods of time. Some adjustments to the conditions may have to be made to support the bees and encourage the pollination of the target flowers.
What crops can native bees pollinate?
Some crops where these bees have proven beneficial include: Strawberries, Mangoes, Avocados, Watermelons, Blueberries, Lychees and Macadamias.
How it works
You get in touch, we discuss initial details, and conduct a site visit to ensure suitability. Then, a customised placement and pollination plan is developed with both the bees and your needs in mind.
We install and maintain the discussed number of native beehives.
The bees pollinate your crops, and you experience the benefits. The customised plan may involve year-round placement or only during flowering periods.
