The impact of drifting workers and drones on evaluating performance data of honeybee (Apis mellifera carnica ) colonies was studied using DNA microsatellites. Colony size, honey yield and colony level of infestation with Varroa jacobsoni were evaluated from 30 queenright colonies. Individuals (n = 1359 workers from 38 colonies, n = 449 drones from 14 colonies) were genotyped using four DNA microsatellite loci. Maternity testing was used to identify drifted individuals. The drifting of workers… CONTINUE READING
