Comparative study of Apis mellifera queen and queen cell acceptance in mating nuclei



Comparative study of Apis mellifera queen and queen cell acceptance in mating nuclei



Anale Statiunea Centrala de Apicultura si Sericicultura 11: 33-41



Queen acceptance levels, studied with 5507 hatched queens and with 2161 queen cells, were similar. Acceptance was highest (about 88%) in August, and lowest (about 75-77%) during May, but was unaffected by the position, and thus the temperature, of the nucleus in the compound hive. Losses of queens on mating were similar for both methods of introduction. Highest losses were recorded from July to September, lowest in May and June.P.
