Study on diversity of bee pollinators was carried at NIPHM, Hyderabad during 2016-17 on sunflower, sun hemp, maize, sweet corn, brinjal, okra, cherry, bottle gourd, ridge gourd and cucurbits. NIPHM maintains ecological engineering (EE) organic field for the purpose of research, training and popularization of the concept of EE. The crops were maintained along with flowering plants like mustard, sunflower, marigold, cosmos etc., to attract beneficial insects. In present study total fourteen bee species from nine genera were identified as pollinators, out of 14 species of bees 5 species were honey bees from family Apidae and Genus Apis and Tetragonula and remaining 9 species were solitary bees. Ecological engineering concept is beneficial to the farmers and environment in many aspects and the most important being conservation of precious bee pollinators.

Key words: Ecological Engineering, Bee Pollinators, NIPHM, Organic field.
