About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Serbian

Data are presented on domestication of the solitary bee Osmia cornuta (Latr.), some attention being paid to Osmia rufa (L.) as well. Both species are more effective as polinators of fruit tree than honeybees. The book discusses life cycles, bionomy, enemies, parasites of the bee species and methods of their management. A special part of the book is devoted to the accompanying fauna of Osmia cornuta, with a special attention to protection measures against the most significant reducers. The book is addressed to entomologists and specialists in pollination management.
