Effects of allatectomy on the mating flight and egg laying of newly emerged queen honeybees



Effects of allatectomy on the mating flight and egg laying of newly emerged queen honeybees



Mitteilungen der Deutschen Gesellschaft fur Allgemeine und Angewandte Entomologie 1(2-4): 317-319



Virgin queen honeybees, from which the corpora allata had been removed, began to oviposit spontaneously between the 12th and 18th day. About 4-5 days later, these drone-producing queens made 1 or 2 mating flights, then egg laying was continued. Untreated or sham-operated control queens exhibited mating flight activity from day 7 and usually started laying eggs a few days later.
