Provision of royal jelly during the development of queen larvae of four honeybee races, and the amount of wax in the queen cells



Provision of royal jelly during the development of queen larvae of four honeybee races, and the amount of wax in the queen cells



Pszczelnicze Zeszyty Naukowe 29: 57-71



During the first 6 days of queen larval development, differences were observed between Caucasian, Carniolan, Italian and north European honeybee races. Carniolans built the largest (and heaviest) queen cells and put most royal jelly in each cell; these bees are therefore recommended for commercial royal jelly production. In Polish conditions, the best times of year for its production are at the end of May and in early August.
