We recommend using bumblebees in combination with some honeybees for the pollination of white clover!
- We recommend 8 or more bumblebee hives per hectare when used in combination with honeybees. Ideally space the bumblebee hives evenly throughout the crop, but keep them as far away from the honeybee hives as possible.
The Biology of white clover
White clover has shorter corollas than red clover and Bombus terrestris
is able collect the nectar without robbing the flower.
