Contribution to the study of the relationship between the initiation of oviposition in queen honeybees and the development of the hypopharyngeal glands in workers


, : Contribution to the study of the relationship between the initiation of oviposition in queen honeybees and the development of the hypopharyngeal glands in workers. Vedecke Prace Vyzkumneho Ustavu Vcelarskeho v Dole 9: 149-154

Inseminated queen honeybees were kept in laboratory cages in a flight room with 400-500 workers. There was a relationship between the state of development of the hypopharyngeal glands of the workers and the length of time after insemination before the queen started to lay (P > 0.01). It is suggested that the start of oviposition could be quickened by speeding up the development of the workers' hypopharyngeal glands. Author.

In an experimental study in 1976-78, 4 groups of worker honeybees (weighing from 100 to 250 g) were subjected to the following treatments: (1) a laying queen was present; (2) with a laying queen and with unsealed brood; (3) without a queen, but gi...

In the presence of brood, protein synthesis was...
