Abstract:

The effects of three factors operating during pre-emergence development period on some of the characteristics of droneswere studied. Weight of newly emerged drones, length of forewing, length of tibia, length of femur, length and width of basitarsusand number of spermatozoa in drones from colonies in which the workers had access to drone brood (A), the size of brood cells differed(B) or the colony had a queen or was queenless (C), were determined.
