A candidate red clover pollinator Osmia coerulescens (L.)



A candidate red clover pollinator Osmia coerulescens (L.)



Journal of Apicultural Research, 201: 62-65



A leaf-cutter bee, Osmia coerulescens, was able to increase its population when solely on red clover, and so pollinate this important crop plant. Seed yields from Osmia-pollinated plants averaged 440 kg/ha. Data on the sex ratio and the average number of cells produced are given. Mortality of overwintering adults was high.
