Drone abundance, queen flight distance, and the neutral mating model for the honey bee, Apis mellifera



Drone abundance, queen flight distance, and the neutral mating model for the honey bee, Apis mellifera



Africanized honey bees and bee mites: 173-183



Five apiaries of nucleus colonies (from west to east: Y, W, O, B, G) were established at 805-m intervals along a 3220-m east-west transect in an area of treeless prairie in Kansas, USA. All drones were removed from W, O and G apiaries, and young cordovan drones and brood were added to additional nuclei at Y. Young, marked, wild-type drones were located similarly at B.
