Use of a queen excluder at the hive entrance and its effects on hoarding activity and hive development of Apis mellifera


Use of a queen excluder at the hive entrance and its effects on hoarding activity and hive development of Apis mellifera



Acta Scientiarum 20(3): 383-386



ISSN/ISBN: 1679-9291

A study was done to investigate the effect of the use of a queen excluder at the hive entrance on A. mellifera hoarding activity, pollen load and hive development in 6 hives, 3 of which were provided with queen excluders. An average of 51.4%, 37.0% and 11.6% of the honey bee workers which entered the hives at 08.00-11.00 h, 11.00-14.00 h and 14.00-17.00 h, respectively, were pollen-loaded.
