Production and development of africanized honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) colonies departing from different comb brood areas and brood ages



Production and development of africanized honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) colonies departing from different comb brood areas and brood ages



Ciencia Rural 34(2): 545-549



The Brazilian apiculture relies on collecting wild swarms of Africanized honey bees (A. mellifera) to replace and/or increase the number of colonies in the apiaries. This practice brings problems such as dependence on nature to capture any swarm, diverse genetic make-up of the colonies captured and the possibility of these swarms be carrying diseases and parasites harmful to the bees.
