Queen honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) mating success in relation to different sizes of mating nuclei

Queen honeybee Apis mellifera L mating success in relation to different sizes of mating nuclei: xii + 106 pp.
Queen honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) mating success in relation to different sizes of mating nuclei
The 3 sizes of mating nuclei used were: (1) normal (4 British Standard frames, internal volume 16 500 cmsuperscript 3); (2) 'baby' (Kirchhain polystyrene hive, 2640 cmsuperscript 3); (3) micro (Atkinson micro-nucleus, 224 cmsuperscript 3). Mean head widths of the queens introduced into the nuclei (30, 31 and 31 queens in types 1, 2 and 3 respectively) indicated that they were all of similar size.
