Gyne and Drone Production in Bombus Atratus (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
TLDR
More drones and fewer gynes were produced per colony under greenhouse conditions with the highest number of drones produced by D&G colonies and the numbers of immature stages per cell declined in colonies as increasingly more resources were allocated to the production of gynes and the maintenance of increased nest temperature.

Effect of fresh pollen pellets and pollen balls coated with and without beeswax on the life history parameter of bumblebee (Bombus terrestris)

  • 2015
TLDR
This investigation deals with the possible effect of fresh pollen pellets and pollen balls coated and without coated with beeswax on the life history parameter of bumblebee and their consumption rate and found that at colony initiation stage pollen patties without beesWax coat was best and at colony foundation stage and colony maturation stage pollenpatties with one coat of Beeswax was best.

STUDIES ON PESTS AND DISEASES OF BUMBLE BEE(BOMBUS HAEMORRHOIDALIS SMITH) IN INDIA
TLDR
Studies during 2010-2012 were conducted to know the different pests and diseases of bumble bees for better domiciliation and commercialization of the bombiculture in the authors' country. Expand
Cría artificial de abejorros nativos Bombus atratus y Bombus bellicosus (Hymenoptera, Apidae)
TLDR
Uruguay cuenta con dos especies nativas de abejorros: Bombus atratus y  Bombus bellicosus cuya cria artificial es considerada dificil, y se encuentran en el rango of los reportados en condiciones similares para otras espescies de abEJorros. Expand
Availability of Sugar Solutions for Colony Development and Progeny-Queen Production of the European Bumblebee, Bombus terrestris
TLDR
The white sugar solution was the favorable sugar solution for the egg-laying and colony developmental characteristics of B. terrestris queens and queens raised on the prepared sugar solution did not found any colonies. Expand
Agricultural Utilization and Year-Round Rearing Techniques of Bumblebees in Korea
TLDR
The current status and agricultural utilization of commercially managed bumblebees as well as bumblebee rearing techniques in Korea are described and feeding, rearing room conditions, colony initiation, mating and diapause breaks are described to establish year-round mass reared techniques of the bumble bee Bombus ignitus. Expand
Nesting ecology, management and population genetics of bumblebees : an integrated approach to the conservation of an endangered pollinator taxon
TLDR
The efficacy of certain agri-environment prescriptions for providing spring forage and nest sites for bumblebees is assessed and coexistence between some bumblebee species may be maintained by resource partitioning based on diel activity patterns that are linked to species-specific environmental tolerances. Expand
Bombiculture: A fascinating insect industry for crop pollination in Korea
TLDR
The present project has focused on unveiling the production technology of B. terrestris for environmentally‐friendly crop pollination, and shows how the wild insects can contribute to the authors' welfare as one of the useful biological resources. Expand
A century of advances in bumblebee domestication and the economic and environmental aspects of its commercialization for pollination
TLDR
L'acceptation rapide des bourdons et leur vaste introduction en tant que pollinisateurs peut s'expliquer par les avantages economiques par rapport aux techniques plus anciennes, souvent artificielles are presente l'evolution dans l'expansion mondiale. Expand
