A comparison of three non-migratory systems for managing honey bees (Apis mellifera L.) in Minnesota. Part I: management and productivity

A comparison of three non-migratory systems for managing honey bees (Apis mellifera L.) in Minnesota. Part I: management and productivity

American Bee Journal 130(1): 44-48

The experimental unit for each of the 3 systems compared in this trial contained 2 laying queens in the build-up period. The first system consisted of two 2-lb packages (2PK) hived on 2 different hive stands; the second consisted of a parent colony and its division on the same stand ('vertical' or V2Q); the third consisted of a parent colony on its original stand and its division on a different stand ('horizontal' or H2Q).
