Honey bees can provide the pollination services required for the production of apples, pears, nashi fruit and quinces that meet current quality standards and have good marketability.  Pollination is essential for fruit set and for the formation of seeds.  Seeds produce hormones that benefically affect growth and size of individual fruit. Fruits with seeds distributed evenly in the ovary are uniformly shaped, but those with seeds unevenly distributed are usually misshapen. Better fruit set on king bloom (eg. In a research trial, 240 fruit / 100 flower clusters on apple trees open to bee visits compared to 8 fruit / 100 clusters on apple trees caged to prevent bee visits).
The 7 Benefits of Pollination with Rentabee
Seed numbers for improved fruit quality in terms of shape and size ( 7seeds per fruit on open trees compared to 2 seeds on caged trees.
Evenly shaped fruit.
Longer storage life as well as fewer core root issues.
Earlier pollination before ovules begin to degenerate (research has shown that pollination of ¡°Delicious¡± flowers 48 and 72 hours after flower opening produced low sets of 11% and 3% respectively).
Elimates bi-annual crops and reduced stress on trees.
Better flavour because of growth hormones when seeds are set.
Optimum pollination of king blooms for quality fruit, and a better bottom line because more fruit are top grade.
Suggested bee hive colony stocking rates for pome fruits.
Apples and Pears 2-3 per ha,  Nashi Fruit and Quince 2 per ha. Higher stocking rates may be required for high density plantings, i.e. Trellis and Hedgerows.
Honey bees have a tendency to forage along rows rather than cross to adjacent ones. This happens when the distance between rows is greater than the distance between trees within rows, this would be expecially true if there were a low number of bees in the orchard, planting polliniser cultivars within rows would produce better results and the choice of these is important.  Suitable pollinisers must produce fertile pollen which is compatible with the main crop cultivar and have a flowering period which coincides with that of the main crop cultivar, and be attractive to honey bees.
Bees are more attracted to apples because of sugar content in flower i.e apples 25% compared to pears 7%.
Agricultural Chemicals
Consult the agricultural chemical product label or manufacturer¡¯s details on bee hazard ratings.  Observe the residual hazard that may apply to bees for a period of time after the application of the chemical.
Over the past 10years we have seen more and more orchards netted.  This can cause pollination problems.
Less wind movement thus less pollen transfer.
Less insect activity and entry especially with side nets.
Bees caught in hail netting and dying due to overnight cold temperatures.
Benefits of the Rentabee Pollination Service
Industry leaders with multiple transport and equipment, a network of reliable operators and a large number of hives in all areas.
Bees guaranteed to be delivered on time.
Young Queenbees bred to produce populous, vigorous hives craving for pollen.
In winter we house our hives in warm northern climates so they are stronger and more advanced. This allows for pollination of almond orchards in early August.
Once you work with us we will help you maximise your crop.

A high population of honeybees is essential during almond flowering for a crop of nuts to be set. In fact, commercial almond production is not possible without honeybee pollination. For nuts to be set, a cultivar must receive pollen from a compatible polliniser cultivar. This transfer of pollen is known as ¡®cross-pollination¡¯ and honeybees are well suited to perform this task as they forage for nectar and pollen.
Almonds flower early in late winter and spring when honeybee colonies under natural conditions have a relatively low population of adult bees. Beekeepers who provide honeybee pollination services to almond growers commence preparation of their colonies in the preceding autumn to ensure each colony has a satisfactory population of adult bees available to visit the flowers and provide the best pollination result.
The main crop cultivar and polliniser cultivar are usually planted in adjacent rows. A high population of bees in the orchard will encourage foragers to move from row to row rather than along rows and this results in a high rate of cross-pollination and set of nuts. Use of a lower colony stocking rate than that currently recommended will probably not achieve this desired result.
Hives are best placed in groups, situated about 300-400 metres apart so that no tree is more than 150-200m from a hive. This is because the cool weather conditions at this time of the year can restrict honeybee flight to short distances from the hive. Groups of hives are normally placed around the edge of blocks and also in the centre of large blocks. Hives should preferably face north to north-east and be positioned in weed free, sunny positions away from the shade of almond and other trees.
Almond flowers are best pollinated as soon as possible on the day they open. Delays in pollination after this time can result in a much lower rate of set and research has shown that little if any set occurs if pollination is delayed by five days or more. For this reason, delays in hive introduction to this crop should be avoided and careful distribution of hives, as described above, should be followed so that all trees are visited by bees whenever bee flight s possible.
Leaving pollination of almond orchards to feral honeybees is poor management because their numbers are too low and they cannot be distributed throughout the orchard.
