Queen substance pheromone produced by immature queen honeybees



Queen substance pheromone produced by immature queen honeybees



Journal of Apicultural Research 18(1): 12-15



When queenless colonies were each given a sealed queen cell, they built fewer additional queen cells than queenless control colonies did. However, empty queen cells or open cells with larvae did not depress the production of emergency cells. The experiments indicate that an immature queen in a sealed cell produced a pheromone with inhibitory activity on the initiation of queen rearing.
