Abstract In a side-by-side test in Venezuela, 593 eggs from 7 Africanized queen honeybees and 355 eggs from 7 European queens (from USA) were kept in an incubator (35 ± 1°C) without adult bees. Eggs from the two groups hatched after 69·6 ± 1·06 hand 73·3 ± 1·14 h, respectively (x ± SO), indicating a basic physiological difference between development periods for eggs from the two populations.
