Corbicular loads of the African honeybee



Corbicular loads of the African honeybee



South African Bee Journal 53(5): 3-6



In a 3-year study, the contents of pollen traps on hives in 14 localities were analysed; in 187 samples, each consisting of about 500 pellets, the percentage of mixed pellets was 0-10.2% (average 0.7%). During two weeks of intensive brood rearing, the pollen collections of 3 colonies in one apiary were compared; in the first week the main pollen sources used by each colony were different, except that 2 colonies collected Jasminum pollen.
