Adapting honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) to synthetic alarm pheromones to reduce aggression
J. B. Free
Honeybees became adapted to synthetic alarm pheromone components dispensed within their hives and were less inclined to sting. The reduction in the stinging response of honeybee colonies which were adapted to 6 or 8 alarm pheromone components was no more than in colonies adapted to 3 components only.
