Abstract

Knowledge of honey bee biology, especially behaviour, is essential for efficient colony management. The biology of African honey bees is much less well known than that of European honey bees. Of the African honey bees, Apis mellifera scutellata, the honey bee introduced into Brazil in the 1950s, is the best known. The behaviour of Africanized bees in the Americas may differ from that of African honey bees. Some behavioural characteristics of A. m. adansonii are also known.
