The influence of a colony's queen state on the drifting of drone honey bees (Apis mellifera L.)



The influence of a colony's queen state on the drifting of drone honey bees (Apis mellifera L.)



Apidologie, 223: 183-195



Drones were marked individually with numbered tags and introduced into pairs of hives that were spaced 1 m apart facing south. The queen state of one colony in each pair was altered (caged virgin queen, caged mated queen, mated-laying queen, queenless or pheromone lure) and the other member of the pair remained queenright. Drifting of 4 independent age groups of drones (5-10, 10-15, 15-20 and 20-25 days old) was studied.
