VegiBee Garden Pollinator  new-ani.gif (3875 bytes)

The VegiBee Garden Pollinators were designed to dramatically improve the productivity of the home food garden. The Vegibee Garden Pollinators are designed to replace bees, chemicals and the wind to manually pollinate food crops in a greenhouse, hydroponic or outdoor garden. VegiBee Garden Pollinators are high vibration devices that gently release pollen from the flower onto a specially designed collection spoon. The excess pollen is then used to manually pollinate 5-6 additional flowers on the same plant, increasing the yield by 30-40%.

The VegiBee plant pollinators can be used on all flowering plants such as tomatoes, peppers, peas, beans, eggplants, blueberries and strawberries. VegiBee pollinators are affordable, easy to use and will ensure an abundant yield in your home food garden.

Both models have a 6 month warranty and a 30 day money back guarantee.

  2. An exclusive variable speed control knob allows user to adjust the amount of vibration for optimum pollination.

  3. Operates on  6 volt battery.

  4. Produces a very high quality vibration with a stronger movement than the old style pollinator. Uses only slightly more power, but has much better pollination.
