Factors affecting the acceptance of transplanted worker larvae by queen cell building colonies in the commercial rearing of queen honeybees (Apis mellifera L.)



Factors affecting the acceptance of transplanted worker larvae by queen cell building colonies in the commercial rearing of queen honeybees (Apis mellifera L.)



Factors affecting the acceptance of transplanted worker larvae by queen cell building colonies in the commercial rearing of queen honeybees Apis mellifera L: 60



Shaking and displacement methods for the selection of worker honeybees with large hypopharyngeal glands for stocking queen cell nursing colonies were evaluated. The displacement procedure, using a screened brood box, was considered to be the best method for isolating bees with gland weights in the range of 6--20 mg. A biometrical approach was introduced for the comparative study of queen cell morphology.
