The role of the responses of Apis mellifera L. workers to the queen pheromone in determining their behaviour towards the queen



The role of the responses of Apis mellifera L. workers to the queen pheromone in determining their behaviour towards the queen



Zemdirbyste, Mokslo Darbai 80: 249-255



The response of the retinue behaviour of worker bees to the queen was used to study the workers' response to the queen pheromone. Worker bees were exposed to the bee queen extract and pheromone components, 9-oxo-2-decenoic acid and 9-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid. Behavioural investigations showed that only the bee queen extract elicited retinue behaviour in worker bees.
