A study on the activity of Apis mellifera ligustica colonies with instrumentally inseminated or naturally mated queens



A study on the activity of Apis mellifera ligustica colonies with instrumentally inseminated or naturally mated queens



Apicoltura ( 7): 101-112



Honey bee colonies were evaluated in a 5-yr study in 2 localities in the Po valley, Italy; regular counts were made of the number of brood cells, number of adult bees and amount of stored honey. Colony activity varied from year to year, and between localities, but was not significantly affected by the age of the queen. Colonies with a queen that had been instrumentally inseminated produced less brood in the middle of the season than colonies with a naturally mated queen.
