Comparative data for the migration of spermatozoa into the spermatheca of mature queen honeybees kept in confinement and inseminated naturally or instrumentally



Comparative data for the migration of spermatozoa into the spermatheca of mature queen honeybees kept in confinement and inseminated naturally or instrumentally



Anale Institutul de Cercetari pentru Apicultura 1: 79-86



Queens caged from emergence until mating (C) were compared with queens kept normally in nuclei (N). On mating, there were heavier losses among N than C; after mating, similar numbers of spermatozoa were found in N and in C. After instrumental insemination, a C queen contained 2.47-6.67 X 106 spermatozoa, depending on the size of the spermatheca; on average this was 23.5% less than a similar C queen mated naturally.
