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

Queen honeybee Apis mellifera L mating success in relation to different sizes of mating nuclei: xii + 106 pp.

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.
