Extractable surface hydrocarbons of workers and drones of the genus Apis

Extractable surface hydrocarbons of workers and drones of the genus Apis

Journal of Apicultural Research, 241: 13-26

Extractable surface hydrocarbons of adults of various ages chosen at random from species of honeybees (Apis florea, A.dorsata, A.mellifera and A.cerana), and newly-emerged adult workers of subspecies of A.mellifera were analysed by GC and combined GC/MS. There were significant quantitative and qualitative differences between the hydrocarbons of the 4 species of Apis.
