Honey bees: the effect of group size on longevity and hoarding in laboratory cages



Honey bees: the effect of group size on longevity and hoarding in laboratory cages



Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 715: 732



Groups of 10 caged workers had a shorter life and hoarded less than groups of 20, 30, 40, 50 or 100 bees. Results indicated that a group of 30 bees is suitable for such studies.
