Research on the Effect of Acidifying Substances on Bee Families Development and Health in Spring
Keywords:acidifying substances, bee families, spring
The paper prezents a study on the effect of acidifying substances on the development the bee families during spring. The research was made at beeyards from Jebel, Timis county from 15 April to 4 May 2011. The biological material being represented by 30 bee families of Apis mellifica carpatica, Banat ecotype, divided in 3 experimental grups of 10 families each with equal strength. The bee families of experimental grups were fed sugar syrup where incorporated lactic or acetic acid. During the research period was analized the number of brood cells at 7, 14, 21 days. Experimental groups that were fed acidifying substances recorded statistical differences in terms of the number of brood cells at 14 and 21 days comparend with control grup.
