A century of advances in bumblebee domestication and the economic and environmental aspects of its commercialization for pollination

L'acceptation rapide des bourdons et leur vaste introduction en tant que pollinisateurs peut s'expliquer par les avantages economiques par rapport aux techniques plus anciennes, souvent artificielles are presente l'evolution dans l'expansion mondiale.

A century of advances in bumblebee domestication and the economic and environmental aspects of its commercialization for pollination *

This paper reviews a century of progress in techniques of bumblebee rearing, starting with those used to encourage bumblebee queens to initiate a colony in artificial domiciles and including those

Developing and establishing bee species as crop pollinators: the example of Osmia spp. (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae) and fruit trees

The development of a bee species as a new crop pollinator starts with the identification of a pollination-limited crop production deficit and the selection of one or more candidate pollinator species, and culminates with the delivery of a viable system to manage and sustain the new pollinator on a commercial scale.

Pollinators: Their Relevance in Conservation and Sustainable Agro-Ecosystem

Survival and reproduction of several wild plants and crops is mostly by insects pollinator, their recognition and importance have been increased in this climatic changing scenario, which affects the

Assessing the Effects of Cold Storage Regimes of North American Bombus Queens: Long Live the Humble Queen

A critical component to successful bumble bee rearing includes prolonged cold storage of mated queens, which mimics the overwintering phase of the natural life cycle for these temperate bees, however, captivecold storage of North American Bombus yields high mortality and having the capability to increase the duration of cold storage would be valuable tool.

An assessment of artificial nests for cavity-nesting bees (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae) in lowbush blueberry (Ericaceae)

The results suggest that certain artificial nests have potential for encouraging communities of cavity-nesting bees, but further study on nest design and handling protocols is needed.

Combined exposure to sublethal concentrations of an insecticide and a fungicide affect feeding, ovary development and longevity in a solitary bee

This paper orally exposed newly emerged females of the solitary bee Osmia bicornis to environmentally realistic levels of clothianidin and propiconazole and found a synergistic interaction between the neonicotinoid and the fungicide on survival probability and an interaction between treatment and emergence time (an indicator of physiological condition) on longevity.
