Differential attractiveness of two cruciferous species to honeybees

Differential attractiveness of two cruciferous species to honeybees

Proceedings of the Eleventh International Congress of the International Union for the Study of Social Insects, India: 434-436

The population densities of Apis mellifera and A. dorsata on Brassica chinensis and Eruca sativa growing in adjoining fields were recorded. Nectar composition and yields were also measured. At peak foraging times there were 5.8 +or- 1.1 A. mellifera/msuperscript 2 and 3.4 +or- 0.5 A. dorsata/msuperscript 2 on B. chinensis; corresponding populations on E. sativa were 2.6 +or- 0.9 and 1.4 +or- 0.5/msuperscript 2 respectively.
