Pollination hives

Alf Brugman Beekeeping Blog

This week we supplied 6 beehives to a blueberry farm to pollinate the flowers and ensure a crop of berries. Blueberry plants will not produce fruit without honeybees to spread pollen from flower to flower, so the hives are vital. Our bees have helped this farmer to produce large crops of organic blueberries for many years. The bees work on the flowers for about 5 weeks and are then moved to a eucalyptus forest to collect nectar to produce honey.
