Pollination

Did you know that over a third of all human food needs to be pollinated by bees? 

We are very experienced in crop pollination and have beehives available in Canterbury every season for your needs.  No job too big or too small, we can cater for all of your requirements.

For optimum pollination, the hives should be spread evenly throughout the crop.

We recommend

Please be aware, that for the health and wellbeing of our bees, the hives need to be protected from the weather (ie not facing south)and away from any insecticide and herbicide spraying as well as irrigation.
