Bombus impatiens


The Bombus impatiens crop pollinator is a bumblebee species that is best known to control thrips.

Application Rate Recommendations for Bombus impatiens:

  • Preventative: 1-2 bees per square foot
  • Moderate Infestation: 2-3 bees per square foot
  • Heavy Infestation: 3-5 bees per square foot

How-To Use Bombus impatiens For Best Results:

  • Place the Bombus impatiens hive in the greenhouse or garden before planting

  • The hive should be placed in a shaded area with good ventilation and out of direct sunlight

  • The hive should be placed on a flat surface and should not be moved once it has been placed

  • The hive should be opened immediately upon receipt and placed in the greenhouse or garden. The bees will begin to fly out of the hive within a few minutes of being released. The bees will fly around the greenhouse or garden looking for flowers to pollinate. The bees will return to the hive when they are finished pollinating

Features & Benefits:

  • Bumblebees are excellent pollinators for tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, melons, cucumbers, and other crops.
  • Bumblebees are more efficient pollinators than honeybees because they can fly in colder temperatures and lower light conditions.
  • Bumblebees are gentle and rarely sting.
  • Bumblebees are easy to use and require no maintenance.
  • Bumblebees are an environmentally friendly alternative to pesticides.

Shipping & Returns

Because we ship live insects and want them to arrive to you as freshly as possible, we only ship Monday through Wednesday. This means your shipment will arrive Tuesday through Thursday, possibly Friday if there are any unforeseen delays such as bad weather. Since FedEx does not ship over the weekend, we do not want insects to sit in a fulfillment center where they have a greater chance of not arriving to your garden fresh-as-can-be.
