Abstract
Hiving queenless package honeybees increased bee losses significantly, as did storage of packages at high temperatures (24° c) for 48h under light or dark conditions. However, there were no significant differences in bee losses after hiving between packages containing 0.9 or 1.8kg bees, between packages that were shaken or not at hiving (in the evening), or between packages stored under light or dark conditions, at 14° or at 24°.
