Increasing the efficiency of queen mating nuclei



Increasing the efficiency of queen mating nuclei



American Bee Journal 121(8): 570-571, 574



A caged newly emerged virgin queen was introduced into each of 30 mating hives that already contained a queen, 1 week old, free to fly and mate. When the latter queen started laying, she was removed, and the virgin queen was then released into the hive. The same procedure was repeated for 10 weeks, with slight modifications to the method. Of 270 virgin queens, 196 laying queens were obtained; the mating success of 72.6% was almost double that of the single-queen system.
