Book Description

5 Sep 2000
The behaviour of these bees has been adapted to some extent to meet beekeeping requirements but few advances have been made in altering their behaviour so that honey and wax production is increased. Bee pheromone research aims to identify the pheromones and make analogous synthetic chemicals thus allowing the control of the colony's activities and enhancing honey production. This book evaluates the present state of knowledge of each known pheromone, discusses the pheromones of the stingless bees and describes the effect of pheromones on the social organization and mating behaviour of bumblebees. Suggestions are made for further and different types of research into pheromones. The book should be of interest to zoologists, entomologists and general biologists.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good description of honey bee pheromones 14 Nov 2013
By Bob's Beekeeping - Published on Amazon.com
Detailed information on the pheromones of social bees is difficult to find unless you have access to the difficult to read academic journals. There is a lot of apparently shallow information on the internet but I do not find much of it either trustworthy or sufficiently detailed for my needs. This book by Chapman and Hall provides a detailed description of the different bee pheromones, and in particular the honey bee, Apis Mellifera. The book is a bit dry to read and thus can be hard going but this is compensated for by the wealth of information that it contains in one inexpensive volume.
