Losses of queens inseminated instrumentally twice and once and mated naturally



Losses of queens inseminated instrumentally twice and once and mated naturally



Pszczelnicze Zeszyty Naukowe 40(2): 263



Queens were (A) inseminated twice, when aged 6 and 8 days, with 4 mmsuperscript 3 semen each time, then clipped to prevent flying, or (B) inseminated once at 6, 8 or 14 days of age, with 8 mmsuperscript 3 semen, and allowed to fly afterwards, or (C) mated naturally. Losses, which were compared among 237 queens in 3 seasons, ranged from 8.2% to 22.0%. Losses were lowest in A; in C they averaged 21.7% and in B, 22% for queens inseminated at 6 days.
