Life Science: Brassica & Butterfly System

Bee Stick



The bee stick is used for pollinating Brassica flowers. The bee stick requires a dead bee mounted at the tip of a toothpick. You can purchase dead bees from Carolina Biological Supply Company (1-800–334–5551) or www.carolinabiological.com. Alternatively, you can find your own dead bee (or other flower-feeding insect), or use a fine paint brush.
