Transfer of pheromone from immature queen honeybees, Apis mellifera



Transfer of pheromone from immature queen honeybees, Apis mellifera



Physiological Entomology 74: 401-406



Immediately after visiting cells containing immature queens, workers were observed to engage in prolonged cleaning, particularly of their tongues when they had visited larvae, and of their antennae when they had visited pupae. Thereafter other workers usually initiated and made antennal contacts with them. During such antennal contact the bee that had visited a queen larva often donated food.
