Abstract
Growth rates of honeybee larvae (Apis melli/era) were determined in the period April-July by weighing individual larvae at definite age intervals. Larval weight was correlated to larval age and the relationship expressed in terms of regression equations. A coefficient of variation of 20% was established as a maximum acceptable variation for pooled samples of 20 larvae.
