Flying Doctors Hive Turbo - Bumblebee Pollination
Flying Doctors Hive Turbo is a unique and patented system containing a turbo quality colony. It consists of a specially developed hive with an integrated dispenser system for having biopesticides or previously collected pollen spread in the crop by bumblebees. On its way out of the hive, bumblebees pass through the dispenser tray which contains the biopesticide or pollen. The product sticks to the bumblebees. As they do their pollination work, the bumblebees deliver the product straight to each flower they visit.
