Behavioural studies on queen introduction in the honeybee. 2. Effect of age and storage conditions of virgin queens on their attractiveness to workers



Behavioural studies on queen introduction in the honeybee. 2. Effect of age and storage conditions of virgin queens on their attractiveness to workers



Journal of Apicultural Research 13(2): 127-135



The response of worker honeybees was observed towards 5 age groups of 10 virgin queens in perspex cages. The introduced queens were most readily accepted at the ages of 7 and 35 days; those aged 14, 21 or 28 days were usually rejected.
