The effect of the queen excluder on colony development and honey yield


The effect of the queen excluder on colony development and honey yield



Deutsches Bienen Journal 4(1): 6-9



Colony development was monitored in 20 honey bee colonies, before and after queen excluders were fitted in 10 of the hives (12 April). The colony population reached a maximum in these colonies (E) in mid-June, and in control colonies (C) in early July. The maximum brood development, however, was in C (mid-April to mid-May); the brood area in E was 10% lower until late June. Weight increases by 17 May averaged 11 kg in E and 17 kg in C, and from 8 June to 15 August 67 kg in E and 72 kg in C.
