Laboratory measurement of honeybee brood disease resistance. 2. Uncapping of freeze killed and live brood by newly emerged workers in cages



Laboratory measurement of honeybee brood disease resistance. 2. Uncapping of freeze killed and live brood by newly emerged workers in cages



Journal of Apicultural Research 222: 115-118



Groups of newly emerged worker honeybees in cages uncapped 40 freeze-killed brood cells significantly faster than 40 live brood cells. Workers in cages containing both 20 live brood cells and 20 freeze-killed brood cells uncapped the dead brood significantly faster than the live brood. These findings indicate that the behavior in laboratory cages in analogous to the colony behavior.
