We recommend using bumblebees in combination with honeybees for the pollination of birdsfoot trefoil!
- We recommend 6-10 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 Birdsfoot Trefoil
Requires a large insect, such as a bumblebee, to trip the flowers.
