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.

Electrophysiological identification was made of 2 types of olfactory receptor cells, which respond to phero-mones of the honeybee.

The ability to discriminate among scents may depend on both scent intensity and the ratios of the concentrations of the volatile compounds of a complex...
