  • bumble bees and smaller greenhouses‏

    Created by Stefan Vantchev on

    I have a 36X20 ft double-poly hoop house, filled up with tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers.
    We are located in Toronto, Ohio. I am looking for a pollination solution. Having so many plants, and especially with the cucumbers, it is quite time consuming.

    Would you tell me if the bumble bee hive too big or small for my situation?

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you much

    Hi Stefan –

    The Bumblebee Hive that we offer will treat an area up to 5,000 sq ft and can be used effectively for the pollination of a variety of crops like tomatoes, sweet peppers, eggplants, melons, strawberries, apples, pears and cherries. While this is more than what you need for your growing area — 720 sq. ft — it is the smallest size available.

    Hope it helps!
