Facing the decline of insects in their natural habitat and directly impacting their population and above all biodiversity, the JAMET Pottery has developed due to its know-how a collection specially dedicated to the support of insects. For their well-being and survival, the OLLAS BEE Jamet® bee water reservoir and the LOGE® insect refuge.
Ollas BEE® free-standing bee water reservoir
Ollas BEE Jamet®, 2 years of research and testing by the JAMET Pottery from 2018 to 2020:
1 year to develop the technical qualities of the ceramic (resistance, porosity, autonomy ...) in accordance with the needs established by beekeepers
1 year of tests from April 2019 to March 2020 (particularly dry season marked by numerous and intense heat waves) with various bee colonies (*).
(*) Tests carried out on colonies not transhumed and without food supplement and with Ollas-BEE Jamet® compared to colonies without water reservoir or with water reservoir of « stagnant water » type.
After the scorching heat of 2019, the Ollas-BEE® is making life easier for wild and farmed pollinators who maintain the balance of the biocenosis and pass on healthy ecosystems to future generations.
LOGE® modular and free-standing insect refuge
LOGE®, 1 year and a half of research and development from 2018 to 2019 by Défi Ecologique for 100% entomofauna support in accordance with the recommendations of naturalists and other scientists of the project on a European scale
