Honeybee foraging strategies at a food source in relation to its distance from the hive and the rate of sugar flow

Honeybee foraging strategies at a food source in relation to its distance from the hive and the rate of sugar flow

Journal of Apicultural Research, 213: 139-150

Time spent at the food source (visit-time) and quantity of sugar solution collected during the visit (honey-sac or crop load) were measured in honeybees conditioned to visit an artificial source of sucrose solution giving a controlled rate of flow.
