Colony evaluation is not affected by drifting of drone and worker honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) at a performance testing apiary



Colony evaluation is not affected by drifting of drone and worker honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) at a performance testing apiary



Apidologie 31(1): 67-79



The impact of drifting workers and drones on evaluating performance data of honeybee (A. m. carnica) colonies was studied using DNA microsatellites. Colony size, honey yield and colony level of infestation with Varroa jacobsoni were evaluated from 30 queenright colonies. Individuals (n=1359 workers from 38 colonies, n=449 drones from 14 colonies) were genotyped using 4 DNA microsatellite loci. Maternity testing was used to identify drifted individuals.
