Comparison of the bee colonies with naturally mated and instrumentally inseminated queens



Comparison of the bee colonies with naturally mated and instrumentally inseminated queens



Zemdirbyste, Mokslo Darbai 76: 134-143



Experiments were carried out at the Lithuanian Institute of Agriculture with a view to comparing bee colonies with instrumentally inseminated queens (5 mm3 and 10 mm3 sperm dose) with the bee colonies with naturally mated queens. We used Caucasian x Carniolan bee hybrids. Having instrumentally inseminated queens, 87.8% of them began laying eggs.
