Increased attractiveness of queen honeybees and their acceptance into colonies



Khemoretseptsiya Nasekomykh (2): 181-184



Queenless honeybee colonies accepted 14 fertilized queens, each pretreated with 0.5 ml of a mixture of equal volumes of 1% 9-oxodecenoic acid, 0.1% methylphenyl acetate and 0.1% methylphenyl propionate; the mixture imitated the natural pheromones produced by a queen. Behaviour of the queens is described. (Chem. Abstr. 85 : 105341w (1976).) F.
