Ecology and utilization of insect pollinators frequenting pear flowers and their impact on fruit production



Ecology and utilization of insect pollinators frequenting pear flowers and their impact on fruit production



Korean Journal of Apiculture 8(1): 18-21



Fruit set on pear trees (Pyrus communis) in Shalimar, India, was much higher on open-pollinated flowers compared to those where pollinating insects were not allowed access. The flower visitors were bees (Lasioglossum sp., Colletes), flies (Musca sp., Syrphus sp.), mosquitoes, black ants, thrips and butterflies. Of the various flower visitors, Lasioglossum sp. was the most abundant (80%). The other insects visited in lower numbers and less regularly.
