Abstract

A new tagging and magnetic recapture system permits large-scale studies of the factors that apparently attract bees and regulate their distribution and foraging activities. These data may confirm or disprove many theories proposed from less detailed past research, and hopefully, lead to new concepts concerning pollination. The net result may be greater control over the foraging activities of honeybees and greater efficiency of utilization for pollination purposes and honey production.
