More than 65 °% 1 of the honey in Greece derives from honeydew of insects. In a research work, started in 1977 and continued until now, 32 species of insects have been identified which produce honeydew exploited by bees. All these insects belong to the order Hemiptera : Homoptera and to the superfamilies Aphidoidea, Coccoidea, Psylloidea and Aleyroidea. Among these 32 species, the most important from the point of the honey production, are : The coccids Marchalina hellenica (Gen.) and Phy… Expand
Establishment and honeydew honey production of Marchalina hellenica (Coccoidea Margarodidae) on fir tree (Abies cephalonica)
Marchalina hellenica (Gennadius) (Coccoidea Margarodidae) is an important honeydew producing scale insect useful to apiculture and endemic in the pine (Pinus halepensis) forests of Greece. Up to 1995Expand
Mielato de Stigmacoccus asper (Hemiptera: Stigmacoccidae): recurso melífero de bosques de roble en Colombia
TLDR
Honeydew from oak forests is suggested as a resource for honey, which has the potential to become a new apicultural product in Colombia and is also environmentally important because it promotes the conservation of native oak forests. Expand
Discriminating pine and fir honeydew honeys by microscopic characteristics
TLDR
The results showed that the botanical origin of pine and fir honeydew honeys could be distinguished by microscopic analysis, and discrimination based on the geographical origin of the honeys was not accomplished. Expand

The Coccoidea on Quercus (Fagaceae) in Bulgaria and Greece, with Particular Reference to Their Importance as Honeydew-Producing Insects
TLDR
A study of scale insects on oak trees in Bulgaria and Greece was undertaken between April and October in 2005 and 2006 to determine the sources of honeydew utilized by the bees, finding Parthenolecanium rufulum is the most widespread species. Expand

Check list and zoogeographic analysis of the scale insect fauna (Hemiptera: Coccomorpha) of Greece.
TLDR
According to the latest data, the scale insect fauna of the whole Greek territory includes 207 species; of which 187 species are recorded from mainland Greece and the minor islands, whereas only 87 species are known from Crete. Expand
DETECTION OF FLORA SPECTRUM THROUGH HONEY MICROSCOPIC ANALYSIS
TLDR
Analysis of pollen and honeydew elements in 180 Greek honey samples from different areas of Greece was carried using standard methods of melissopalynology, during two years, finding Cotton and orange honeys are very poor in cotton and orange type pollen, while predominant pollen was found in sunflower and thyme honeys.

TLDR
Within‐species karyotype variation is relatively common in aphids, and instances of structural heterozygosity are particularly numerous in species and groups which have partially or completely abandoned the sexual phase of the life cycle in favour of permanent thelytoky. Expand
