Effects of different arrangements of nuclei in a hive on queen mating and egg laying



Effects of different arrangements of nuclei in a hive on queen mating and egg laying



Zhivotnovudni Nauki 13(2): 122-129



One type of hive box tested was divided into two sections each holding 4 or 5 full-size frames, or into three sections holding 3, 2 or 3 frames respectively. Another type tested was divided into 8 sections which were fitted with frames one-third normal size; 6 sections held 3 and two sections held 2. Queen rearing was equally successful in the two types of hive, queens emerging from about 75% of the cells.
