Greenhouse bumble bees for pollination

14 years ago

Hi, I'm wanting to buy some bumblebees suitable for greenhouse propagation. I understand Arbico sells these, but gee, I don't need a nest that big! My greenhouse is very small. Also if the nest is located in the greenhouse, will the bees be able to find their ways in and out of the greenhouse when the flowering is insufficient to feed them?

I understand these are a less agressive bumble bee used in greenhouses but have never really seen their true name identified. Does anyone know what kind are used? Does anyone know where to get very small nests for very small greenhouses. Thanks. Connie
