Author(s) S. C. JAY
Abstract In two experiments with queenright honey-producing colonies, 17% (46 of 276) and 31% (9 of 29) of the old queens were replaced by queens emerging from queen cells introduced with little or no isolation from the original queen. Few old queens were replaced by young virgin queens introduced to colonies with either smoke or vanilla-haney-water sprays.
