Queen rearing in Sao Paulo State, Brazil: a beekeeping experience of over 20 years

One of the activities of the Department of Genetics (S. Paulo University, Brazil) is rearing queens for research and for sale; 1565 virgin queens, mainly Italians, were mailed in 1985. Normal queen rearing techniques are used, larvae being grafted in re-usable plastic (not wax) cups, and put into rearing colonies for 10-11 days. These are strong Africanized colonies which are more aggressive than the 5-frame nuclei kept in the apiary for research purposes.
