Compared with common pollinators –
bees – they win with a score of 5-0:

Commercial breeding of bumblebees began since the 80s of the 20th century and it acquires scientific and economic grounding every year.
Using bumblebees during flowering increases the harvesting capacity in 3 dimensions: QUALITY, QUANTITY and WEIGHT.
Approximate marks for some crops:
use of bumblebees is capable to double the weight and the number of berries
a quarter more crops compared with honey bees pollination
Bumblebees collect only pollen, while 9 out of 10 bees searching for nectar and do not perform as an active pollinators.
The number of grains in the basket is doubled when bumblebees work instead honeybees, and the oil content is increased by 3%
Analysis of the available results of the use of bumblebees was conducted by ARF “Dziva Krayina” analysts. It is possible to see the data sources (on request) or to conduct your own experiments under the supervision of our specialists.
