stimulates higher consumption of pollen by nursing workers honeybees to feed the larvae and queen, thus stimulating increased egg laying rate and, consequently, increased brood
and population (Pankiw, Sagili & Metz, 2008).
These test colonies initially contained a queen, 2 to 3 g of workers (3,000 to 4,000), and 2 to 3 g of brood
