Behaviour and ecology of the sub-tropical carpenter bee, Xylocopa fenestrata F. 5. Nest recognition and response to nest displacement

, : Behaviour and ecology of the sub-tropical carpenter bee, Xylocopa fenestrata F. 5. Nest recognition and response to nest displacement. Indian Bee Journal 54(1-4): 81-91

The behaviour of female X. fenestrata was studied at a shelter containing artificial nests that were experimentally manipulated. The bees showed a high degree of nest site specificity, and during provisioning they seemed to recognize their own nest by visual and/or olfactory cues. Small positional or angular displacements of tunnels reduced nest re-occupation; large displacements (6 cm or 45 degrees ) resulted in desertion of all nests.
