Flight of the drone honey bee apis mellifera hymenoptera apidae to the queen bee depending on some ecological factors



Flight of the drone honey bee apis mellifera hymenoptera apidae to the queen bee depending on some ecological factors



Entomologicheskoe Obozrenie 56(2): 310-314



Data are presented for flight time, time spent with, and numbers of drone bees mating with the queen bee in relation to air temperature, humidity, cloud cover, wind velocity and season. Research was geared toward increasing numbers of fertile queen bees for the honey industry.
