Honey bees: response to galactose and lactose incorporated into sucrose syrup



Honey bees: response to galactose and lactose incorporated into sucrose syrup



Journal of Economic Entomology, 721: 81-82



The addition of 10% lactose (L) or galactose (G) to 50% wt/wt sucrose solution reduced the amount of solution hoarded by Apis mellifera workers kept in cages with pieces of comb, thus indicating that bees can detect L and G. L and G were toxic in a hoarding test; the toxicity of L was not affected by the presence of oxytetracycline or sulphathiazole.
