A tale of two cover types and the pollination of blueberry flowers by honey bees

This article is about two types of pollination of blueberry. Previous research has shown that crop covers can be a barrier to honey bees, limiting their access to the crop and its floral resources. Whilst bird net generally has holes large enough for honey bees to pass through, in contrast, a plastic film-covered tunnel is less accessible with entry possible only via the tunnel ends.
