    I don't know what "lining" is or how to do it. But I'm ready to learn.

    Many variations exist but here is a pretty easily understood method that will give you an idea of "what" and "how". Many variations exist including glueing a tiny feather to the back of a bee to slow it down in flight allowing you to see it longer.

    P.S. Article on beelining is about half way down the page.

    Thanks for the articles, both were interesting and detailed. I live in a fairly well populated area (1 acre lots) outside the city limits and it's so hot now I probably won't try lining bees anytime soon. It's amazing that it can be done.

    I too found this idea fascinating. I am going to buy the beelining box that brushymountain sells and give it a try when I go up to Wisconsin later in Sept.

    I have read up on the subject quite a bit, but I thought I'd share with you the best text I've found on it.

    I looked it up on Amazon as I could not remember the author's name. Here is the data from Amazon:

    Hunting Wild Bees (Hardcover)
    by Robert E. Donovan

    # Hardcover: 184 pages
    # Publisher: Winchester Pr (August 1984)
    # Language: English
    # ISBN: 0876913109

    It's out of print, but 3 copies were available used starting at $10 (no I'm not selling mine). It is very well written and I highly recommend it.
