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



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



Physiological Entomology, 103: 271-274



The technique used was similar to that described in AA 1235/85. Small colonies, each with c. 5000 bees, a mated laying queen and ample food stores, received one of the following treatments: (1), the queen was allowed to remain; (2), the queen was removed; (3), as (2) but a queen cell from which a queen was due to emerge within 12 h was introduced. In experiments I and II each colony contained 2 combs of brood; in experiment III no brood was present and the queen was enclosed in a cage.
