Africanized honey bees in urban environments: A spatio-temporal analysis
Abstract For honey bees in the desert southwest, urban environments may provide abundant cavities and a more spatially and temporally continuous supply of nectar, pollen and water than would beExpand
Survival of Honey Bees, Apis mellifera (Hymenoptera: Apidae), Fed Various Pollen Sources
Twenty-five pure pollens plus several blends of pollen were fed as sole protein sources to honey bees, Apis mellifera L., and resultant survival of bees on these diets was measured. Average increaseExpand
Honey bee (Hymenoptera: Apidae) preferences among artificial nest cavities.
Natural reproductive swarms of European honey bees ( Apis mellifera L.), when tested in choice experiments, rejected “bait hives” consisting of cardboard boxes covered with plastic in favor ofExpand
Swarm Traps For Survey and Control of Africanized Honey Bees
Africanized honey bees, Apis mellifera scutellata L., are expected to arrive in southern Texas in 1988 or 1989. Currently no tested and effective means of survey or control of these bees areExpand
Criteria for Nest Site Selection in Honey Bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae): Preferences Between Pheromone Attractants and Cavity Shapes
Nerolic acid, the second most abundant compound in the Nasonov pheromone of the honey bee, Apis mellifera L., was investigated to determine its importance as a component in synthetic attractants forExpand
Ecological research: Long-term studies to gauge effects of invading bees
The expected invasion of the United States by Africanized honey bees has inspired long-term studies documenting the ecological importance of native and introduced bees. Baseline data are beingExpand
