A scientific note on the lack of nepotism in queen larval feeding during emergency queen rearing in a naturally mated honey bee colony



A scientific note on the lack of nepotism in queen larval feeding during emergency queen rearing in a naturally mated honey bee colony



Apidologie 36(1): 141-142



Microsatellites were used to analyse the kinship of feeding workers and queen larvae during emergency queen rearing in a colony with a naturally mated honey bee (Apis mellifera) queen.
