A quantitative study of food transfer between worker and drone honeybees


Insectes Sociaux 29(2): 268-279
A quantitative study of food transfer between worker and drone honeybees
In soliciting food from workers, other workers were more successful than drones This can be explained by behavioural differences which are now described; the duration of the contacts between a male and a worker is shorter than that between two workers. Also a drone soliciting food strokes his antennae over the sides and upper part of the worker, but rarely over the mouthparts where there are many mechano-receptors which are involved in stimulating regurgitation.
