Swarming honey bees guided by pheromones

, : Swarming honey bees guided by pheromones. Annals of the Entomological Society of America 68(6): 1079-1082

When artificial swarms (package bees with a queen) were placed on wooden cross stakes, scout bees started to dance on the surface of the cluster after 24 h. When the number of dancers reached about 300, the swarm became airborne for the first time. If the queen was kept caged, the swarm always returned, as often as 5 times a day, and for as long as 4 weeks.

In order to facilitate the XPM analysis, a simplified model was proposed. The model reduc...
