Contribution to the study of the determinism of fanning for ventilation, and with scent gland exposed, in honeybees

Contribution to the study of the determinism of fanning for ventilation, and with scent gland exposed, in honeybees
Some of the workers in a colony start to fan when the temperature in the hive exceeds 36 degrees C. This behaviour was not observed in isolated bees, but its incidence increased with the number of bees kept in a cage (from 10 to 400 workers). In these groups, there was less fanning if antennal contact was prevented. The presence of empty wax cells increased fanning in groups of 10 bees.
