Queen pheromone transfer within honeybee colonies



Queen pheromone transfer within honeybee colonies



Physiological Entomology 54: 359-366



The observations made, which are given in detail, provide strong evidence that workers in a queen's court obtain queen pheromone on their antennae, and that the pheromone is distributed through the colony during antennal contact between workers.
