The use of bees for pollination is extending in various directions, and each extension brings with it new problems to be solved. Infields and orchards, the main problem may be to get the bees to visit all the flowers. In a small plot, this can be ensured by enclosing the plot and a hive of bees in a cage, but special steps are then needed to ensure the well-being of the bees. In this article Mr. Nye, who is on the staff of the Entomology Research Division of the United States Department of Agriculture, describes the colony management necessary. The work was done at Logan, Utah, in co-operation with Utah Agricultural Experiment Station.
