Numerical development of the honeybee colony. IV. Example of the egg-laying activity of the queen, and rate of emergence and length of life of workers (Apis mellifera)



Numerical development of the honeybee colony. IV. Example of the egg-laying activity of the queen, and rate of emergence and length of life of workers (Apis mellifera)



Schweizerische Bienen Zeitung 99: 16-25; 125-140; 244-257



From the spring weight of the colony and regular measurements of the brood area from spring to autumn, the theoretical development of the colony population was calculated. The mathematical model allows the calculation of average length of life of workers at a known emergence rate, or vice versa, but the two variables cannot be estimated independently. The queen's egg laying showed a marked periodicity, which was related more to colony characteristics than to environmental factors.
