Information


The Beepol Villa 2017 is now launched ready for this years bumblebee delivery season!

The new Villa 2017 has a grey, rough felt roof and a wide landing shelf and entrance for the bees. 2016 saw the launch of our colourful Queen Beehives in celebration of the Queen's 90th Birthday,.  Both of  our bumblebee houses are hand made in the UK and able to house the large hive of British native bumblebees, Bombus terrestris audax. The Queen Beehives are available in limited colour batches, so grab them while you can!   These bees can be supported with our wide range of bee friendly plants and seeds. Go to Stories & Photos on our Bee page to see what our customers do with their bees!

 When sowing or planting, one of the best ways to help young plants establish is with the addition of beneficial fungi like Mycorrhizal   fungi. The Dragonfli range of Roots Boost pouches are specially formulated to help plants establish in standard or adverse growing  conditions.  Dragonfli supply granular  Mycorrhiza products  for use at planting and soluble versions for watering in at or after planting.

To combat insect pests in the garden , try first to establish habitats that will attract beneficial insects such as Ladybirds and Lacewings.

Dragonfli supplies a wide range of biological control and natural enemies to help combat pests naturally including a wide range of nematodes for the control of garden pests such as Vine weevil, Fungus fly, Chafer Grubs and Leatherjackets. Our range of natural pest control is increasing all the time, including a Carrot Root Fly trap and a Vine Weevil trap for adult Vine Weevils launched this year.

Biological control is not restricted to the control of pests on plants, we now also have biological control for red mite on chickens and hens in the form of tiny predatory mites that eat the red mites. A similar predatory mite is also available for the control of snake mite on snakes and lizards. This removes the need for using harmful and ineffective chemical treatments.

Pre-order your 2017 Bumblebees

Orders for your 2017 bumblebees can be placed now!

If you already have Beepol Villa or Queen Beehive, you will only need to order the bees this year.

As usual, we will be pre-treating the cardboard with B401 to protect against wax moth attacks, but you will need to treat the wood on the Villa or Queen Beehive yourself.

If you have not had our bees before, then there are two houses to choose from and they will be delivered together with the bees in the spring ( May -July).

 The Villa 2017 also comes with a gift voucher for the large bumblebee colony making it a great present idea or can be pre-ordered  with a live colony for delivery this spring ( May - July)

The Queen Beehive can be ordered with a gift voucher or with a live hive to be sent in the spring.( May -July) This hive is a limited edition and only a few colours remain.

 

 

 

Low temperature nematodes

Vine Weevil Killer nematodes ( low temp) contains  Steinernema species nematodes to treat against Vine Weevil larvae in cooler conditions ( 5C and over), such as the spring or under heated glass.

These nematodes are available now and work well when applied during the dull weather conditions that we have currently.

Vine weevils are very destructive plant pests attacking many different types of plants. Their larvae eat plant roots and can kill plants rapidily.

Available in two pack sizes -  20m2 and 100m2
