A washing technique for collecting large quantities of semen for instrumental insemination of queen honey bees



A washing technique for collecting large quantities of semen for instrumental insemination of queen honey bees



Proceedings of the XXVIIIth International Congress of Apiculture, Acapulco, 1981: 245-249



In a previous comparison of queens inseminated by this technique, or the Mackensen technique or open mating, there were no significant differences in subsequent brood production However, the onset of oviposition was delayed in instrumentally inseminated queens, especially in those where the washing technique was used. In the present work, overwintered queens were dissected to determine the number of spermatozoa in the spermatheca.
