Comparison of honey and royal jelly production among European black honeybee , Italian honeybee , and local honeybee races in Taiwan



Comparison of honey and royal jelly production among European black honeybee , Italian honeybee , and local honeybee races in Taiwan



Zhonghua Kunchong 20(2): 153-156



Apis mellifera mellifera L. and its hybrid with a Taiwanese race have the smallest brood area as compared with Apis mellifera ligustica Spin. and Taiwanese races, while A. m. m. has about 1.5 times the honey storage of the latter two races during winter in Taiwan. A. m. l. colonies showed significant brood rearing behavior during winter. During the longan (Euphoria longana) nectar flow season, A. m. m. had moderate honey production which did not significantly differ from that of the other tested races. However, its royal jelly production was significantly lower, even for those colonies fed green algae as a supplement mixed in syrup or in pollen paste, than that of A. m. l. and the screened Taiwanese superior royal jelly races. The screened Taiwanese superior royal jelly race shows great potential for both royal jelly and honey production.
