Concentration of spermatozoa in the spermatheca of queen honeybees



Concentration of spermatozoa in the spermatheca of queen honeybees



Biene 124(12): 603-606



Thirteen queens, whose performance in the colony had been noted, were killed and dissected so that the contents of the spermatheca could be counted. For 10 queens studied in 1987 the number of spermatozoa ranged from 1.30 million to 4.56 million (mean 3.26 million). Results for 3 queens studied in earlier years were lower. There was a direct relationship between the number of spermatozoa remaining in a queen's spermatheca and her performance until that date.P.
