Response of honey bees to different concentrations of sucrose in a hoarding test



Response of honey bees to different concentrations of sucrose in a hoarding test



American Bee Journal 118(11): 746-747



Groups of 30 newly emerged workers were kept in cages and provided with one of the following (%) concentrations of sucrose syrup: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60. Mean volumes of syrup hoarded per bee per day for these concentrations were 0.057, 0.075, 0.089, 0.095, 0.127 and 0.120 ml, respectively. The differences between hoarding for different concentrations were statistically significant except between 30% and 40%, and between 50% and 60%. D. G.
