The inhibition of queen rearing by feeding queenless worker honeybees (A. mellifera) with an extract of queen substance



The inhibition of queen rearing by feeding queenless worker honeybees (A. mellifera) with an extract of queen substance



J. Insect Physiol, 2: 61-64



An extract obtained by soaking mated queen honeybees in 98 per cent. ethanol for several months and then evaporating to dryness in a water bath was mixed with a few drops of 50 per cent. sucrose syrup and painted on the bodies of 3 dead worker bees which were attached to a strip of worker brood comb and placed in each of 12 Perspex cages containing 150 queenless worker bees with free access to distilled water and a pollen and sugar mixture.
