A piece of work made in response to the Small Scabious Mining Bee. This bee relies upon members of the Scabious family, particularly the Devil's But Scabious, for its source of pollen. The work consists of an Artists book representing the tunnels the bee constructs for its young, and a small vial of Field Scabious, Devil's Bit Scabious and Small scabious seed that can be broken into in an environmental emergency.
