Numerous wild bees can be found in populated areas in intensive and non-intensively farmed areas.
Their importance for all crops, pastures, forests, grass and shrub vegetation is very great. They are superb pollinators that complement pollination bees’ pollination and are an integral part of the environment. In addition, some of them are used successfully as pollinators of greenhouse plants.
They are easily grown by beekeepers and are not sensitive to the Varroa destructor mite. Wild bees (the Bombus family) are a family of publicly-owned Apide bees. Their body reaches a length of up to 3.5 cm and is hair with long hair. They are painted with shrubs, black and white bellies along the width of their chest and belly.
About 300 species of wild bees (terrestrial, garden, stone, etc.) are widely known in all continents, of which more than 40 are listed in our country. In general, all of them are moderate in winter temperate zones fertile mothers, and in the summer they form families who die in the autumn (old mothers, ladies and female workers).
