Koppert Biological Systems was awarded a patent for its Natupol Booster on the Dutch market at the beginning of November 2014. By using a different material, the company has succeeded in preventing damage resulting from gnawing by bumblebees.

A European patent, patents for the United States and a number of other countries outside Europe are expected to be issued in 2015.

With the newly found construction/packaging material, Koppert can produce Natupol Booster using 85 per cent less plastic. This makes the product very environmentally friendly and reduces the waste stream. Natupol Booster holds multiple specially-prepared bumblebee colonies that boost pollination. The new hive is well insulated, but with additional ventilation it is also suited to areas with warmer climates. This allows the bumblebee population to perform for longer.
