Abstract

This note describes equipment which makes it possible to use a queen-right colony of honey-bees to pollinate small numbers of plants without contamination from unwanted pollen and without abnormal loss of bees. Bees are in fairly common use for the controlled pollination of crop plants. Techniques include the use of both humble- and honey-bees, confined in greenhouses, or in cages of wood and glass or of cheese cloths in the open air. Generally only very small colonies of honey-bees have been used, and either small colonies or single individuals of humble-bees.
