Abstract

The responses of virgin honeybee queens from strains of bees either resistant or susceptible to hairless-black syndrome were compared after artificial infection with chronic bee paralysis virus. Queens raised from susceptible stocks showed symptoms of disease faster and died sooner than those raised from resistant ones. The survival rate of queens raised from resistant lines was also higher than that of queens raised from susceptible lines.
