Cannibalism of brood in honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) colonies


, : Cannibalism of brood in honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) colonies. Cannibalism of brood in honey bee Apis mellifera L colonies: 67 pp.

The movement of radiolabelled phenylalanine from larvae cannibalized by workers followed a pattern consistent with optimal recovery of those nutrients which would be functional in subsequent brood rearing. This included localization of the radiolabel in the hypopharyngeal glands of cannibal workers and in royal jelly secreted by them.

The Brazilian apiculture relies on collecting wild swarms of Africanized honey bees (A. mellifera) to replace and/or increase the number of colonies in the apiaries. This practice brings problems such as dependence on nature to capture any swarm,...

During a year-long field test of a commercial pollen supplement, its consumption did not influence brood reaging in colonies that received the supplement during a pollen deficient honeyflow from Eucalyptus leucoxylon. Productivity in these colonie...

Results of a year-long field test of a commercial pollen supplement were analyzed to examine the relationships between consumption of the supplement, honey production and brood rearing in the test colonies. The supplement had no significant effect...

Varroa-infested colonies, which also had chalk brood, were treated in spring with formic acid plates (20 g containing 65% a.i.); each colony was treated 4 times at 4-day intervals. On average, 93.3% of mites were killed, and the number of larvae w...
