Abstract

Experiments were performed to assess nectar forage and the availability of empty combs as well as free building space within the nest cavity in relation to wax secretion. There was a positive correlation between engorgement of the honey stomach and wax secretion. While empty combs and free building space were positively associated with wax secretion, their intensity as stimuli is relative to context.
