Each year sees new evidence
added to the already convincing
preof that bees constitute an im
portant factor in the securing of
a crop of fruit, says the Oregon
Experiment station. The most
recent work has been done by
Tufts and Phllps of California on

Some attention has been given
in these studies to determine the
importance of bumble bees and
short tongOed bees for pollina
tion. It has been shown that

early In the spring, only the
honey bee is numerous enough to
be of value, but cranberries, on
the other hand,-blooming late In
the season as they do, seem to bl
well pollinated by native shoif
tongued bees and bumble bees.
The problem then becomes one
of having sufficient honey bees
present properly to cover the
bloom since the native bees and
other insects cannot be depended
How Many Bees?
Very frequently we are asked
how many colonies are necessary
for a given acreage in order' to
provide sufficient number of bees
for pollenizing an acre. It 4s
not the number of colonies which
count, but rather the number of
field bees which are available.
says the experiment station.
Therefore, it is not only a ques
tion of . having enough colonies,
but of having these colonies
strong In worker bees. Under
the poor management now pre
vailing, colonies will very In

Tha problem, then, is to deter
mine what can be done to make
all available colonies strong, and
at the time the bees are needed
in the orchard.
About 15.000 is- the average
working strength of the normal
eolony In early February. To
bring this colony's strength up to

conditions are necessary, namely:

wintering, swarm control . and
First, The Queen
The most Important factor is
the queen. She is of fundament
al importance in building up the
colony. Requeenfng, therefore.
is done with good Italian stock
at least every other year. Having
secured good queens. It Is highly
important that they be provided
with ample brood rearing room
during the early spring.
The second condition neces
sary Is ample stores. Since the
queen tends to stop laying when
the stores drop to about 15
pounds, it Is a good practice to
see that a surplus beyond thl
amount is always present
With sufficient stores and oth
er favorable conditions, the col-)
ony will find the one-etory 10(
frame hive too small. It Is Im
portant to remember that the
workers , reared during the four
weeks preceding the fruit bloom
are the bees that will do the pol
lenizing. and for that reason, 11
Is extremely important to have
theb rood rearing unhampered by
lack of room. It is recommend
ed, therefore, that the colonies' be
kept In a two-story ten f rame;
hive the year around. ,
In addition to a force of at
least IS. 000 young workers be
sides the old 'bees, ample store!
of honey, sufficient protection!
against prevailing winds, excesl
slve moisture and low tempera
ture are necessary to build up
normally during the early spring.
When colonies ' have come
through the winter In good condi
tion, and the weather has per
mitted them to. gather consider
able nectar from the maples, theyl
are very apt to . make -preparations
for swarming about the sec
ond .week of April, which. If; not
prevented, will. greatly lessen, the.
nnmber of field workers. It Is.
therefore, of extreme Importance
that, the eolony not only be built
up to the maximum strength, but
that it -be kept from dissipating
this strength. In swarming Just
before or at the start of Xralt
- Some of the Important factors
in swarm prevention are young
queens, not over two years oldf
a minimum of drone comb, re
sulting in a minimum of drones
in the hive; sufficient ventilations
a moderate amount of shade dur
ing the hottest part of the day;
sufficient brood rearing room
that is, two8tory, 10 frame hives.
Freedom from disease is the
last fundamental condition neces
sary for strong, colonies. Two
serious diseases of the . young
bees, or brood are known as Eur
opean foulbrood and American
foulbrood. it .Is absolutely
necessary to be ever on the guard
against both disease and to un
derstand their treatment. If
not kept free from these diseases,
the bees will soon succumb and
the hives will ' be nothing' but
sources of contamination to other
bees In the neighborhood, for
several miles about.
Location of the Bem
Another item of considerably
Importance Is the location of the
bees In the orchard. Recent
wok by Hudson of -New Jersey)
would Indicate that the most prac
tical method of locating colonie
In the orchard Is to place four to
vfle colonies every 100 or 2001
yards throughout the orchard. No
doubt the distances would vary
under different conditions, but
these results can probably be tak
en as fitting the average locality.
They are placed. If possible, so
that It will not be necessary to
drive or work horses directly In
front of hives. When it is neces
sary to work horses In front of
the hives, the work Is done at a
time when the bes are not flying.
It Is also an advantage to have
the prevailing wind blowing from
the orchard toward the bees. The
bees prefer to fly empty against
the wind and loaded owner's or
chard in preference to the neigh
bor's ft It Is possible to Influ-t
ence them at all.
In order that bees may take ad
vantage of every opportunity to
work on the fruit bloom during
unsettled weather. It would be
advisable" to have no shade over
them during the period of pollen
lsation other than the ordinary

proper attention to get good re
sults and avoid loss through
swarming, etc, Is evident. When
kept for pollination only, bees do
not require a great deal of at
tention. Four visits each yeati
under normal conditions are usu
ally all that are required.
Owners not experienced In
managing bees properly often
find it more economical to turn
them over to a practical bee keep
er to care for, or to dispose of
the bees and pay a bee keeper to
move bees to the orchard during
the blooming period.' The usual
charge for the latter ranges from
IS to $5 a eolony, depending upon
the difficulty In moving the bees,
to and rrom. the orchard. When
