A study of foraging and pollen collecting activity of honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) in the spring

, : A study of foraging and pollen collecting activity of honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) in the spring. Korean Journal of Apiculture 5(1): 1-22

Flight activity of honeybees at the hive entrance showed a diurnal rhythm, with activity increasing sharply after sunrise, decreasing gradually through the day, and ceasing just before sunset. The total period of foraging increased as the duration of sunshine increased, from 09.00-20.00 h in April to 06.00-21.00 h in May. Pollen foraging usually started 1-2 h after flight activity began and finished 1-3 h before flying ceased, with a maximum level of activity at 13.00 h.
