AbstractFull Text

Previous studies developed by us have shown that the improvement of the hygiene state during the artificial insemination induced by preinsemination flight for dejection and emptying the distal portion of the male and female individuals' intestines has a positive effect on the success of the ...

AbstractFull Text

By this paper we wanted to investigate the importance of drones and queens dejection before the insemination procedure, because it is a serious contamination risk of the seminal material, of the tools and implicitly of the queens with fecal matters. The results of our research show that the...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study is to draft a scientific summary comprehensive enough to serve as a starting point in designing the experimental plan whose objective will be to improve the instrumental insemination technique in bees (Apis mellifera). In Romania, due to the pedo-climatic and environmental...

Abstract

Honeybee viruses represent important factor contributing to worsening colony condition. Study of possible ways of honeybee viruses' transmission can afford to find appropriate methods reducing the risk of infection. Venereal transmission through drone ejaculate has been described. In contrast to...

Abstract

A study was conducted to investigate the effect of different activities of beekeepers on apiary yield in Oshnavieh region in West Azerbaijan province, Iran. The target groups involved 115 beekeepers. All the beekeepers were male and most of them (95.7%) were married. The average age of beekeepers...

Abstract

Eusocial insects exhibit reproductive division of labour, in which one or a few queens perform almost all of the reproduction, while the workers are largely sterile and assist in rearing their siblings. Consequently, many of the colony's tasks (e.g. nest construction and brood rearing) should be...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of the current study was to determine the optimum concentration of bovine serum albumin for post-thawing quality of drone sperm and this is the first study to evaluate the effect of BSA supplemented TL-Hepes based extenders for drone semen cryopreservation. Sexually mature drones were used...

Abstract

The aim of this research was the collection and freezing of honey bee sperm, Apis mellifera, as a trail and evaluating different semen extenders to improve sperm quality after freeze-thawing process as a first trail in Iran. Semen was collected using artificial insemination device. In this...

Abstract

The human-mediated dispersal of species over geographical boundaries can bring previously isolated sister taxa into contact. Interspecific mating between closely related species may then occur, with various outcomes ranging from hybridization to reproductive interference. In the case of the Eastern ...

AbstractFull Text

In mass production, instrumentally inseminated honey bee queens are usually kept in mailing cages with a low number of workers and inseminated with small doses of semen. Inseminated queens should have more than 4 mln sperms in their spermatheca. The aim of this study was to investigate the number...
