Africanized bees in Oberursel

Allgemeine Deutsche Imkerzeitung 23(3): 91
Africanized bees in Oberursel
Six colonies of Apis mellifera scutellata and 5 with hybrid queens (African crossed with A. m. carnica) were brought to the Institut fur Bienenkunde in Oberursel, German Federal Republic, in 1988 or earlier. The purpose was to test their overwintering ability in a temperate climate. Resistance to Varroa jacobsoni was also to be investigated.
