SummarySeasonal honey production, worker pupal weight, length of worker adult life, and dimensions of worker corbiculae were determined for 19 colonies of honeybees (Apis mellifera) at one apiary. Honey production was correlated significantly with length (r = +0·551, P<0·0145) and area (r = +0·575, P<0·01) of corbicula. Area of corbicula was correlated significantly with length of life (r = +0·687, P<0·0012). Selection of honeybees for large corbicular area might increase honey production by… CONTINUE READING
