The effects of the position and apparent movement of the sun and a colony's queen state on the orientation of drone honey bees (Apis mellifera L.) to their hives



The effects of the position and apparent movement of the sun and a colony's queen state on the orientation of drone honey bees (Apis mellifera L.) to their hives



The effects of the position and apparent movement of the sun and a colony' s queen state on the orientation of drone honey bees Apis mellifera L to their hives:



Drones were marked with individually numbered tags and introduced into colonies. Acceptance of marked drones was highest when drones were introduced into the colonies in the afternoon after being confined within the colony overnight. The proportion of introduced drones accepted by colonies was highest when 50 drones were introduced into the single-storey colonies.
