Influence of immature queen honeybees (Apis mellifera) on queen rearing and foraging



Influence of immature queen honeybees (Apis mellifera) on queen rearing and foraging



Physiological Entomology, 94: 387-394



Small colonies, each of c. 5000 bees, received one of the following treatments: (1), the queen was allowed to remain; (2), the queen was removed; (3), as (2) but 5 open queen cells containing larvae were introduced; (4), as (2) but 5 sealed queen cells containing pupae were introduced. Colonies in which fewer than 4 queen cells survived during the experiment were eliminated.
