Example text

There are numerous stories about the powers of royal jelly and the part it can play in human health, but most are anecdotal. In one of Roald Dahl’s Tales of the Unexpected, a U S I N G T H E P R O D U C TS O F T H E H I V E A N D B E E S | 37 character turns his baby son into a bee (or at least a black-and-yellow striped, hairy baby who buzzed) by feeding him exclusively on royal jelly. Amazing stuff! The medicinal and curative properties of the substance lack much clinical research, but what we do know is that it contains the eight essential amino acids, the full vitamin B complex, acetylcholine (a powerful neurostimulant), testosterone, insulin-like peptides and an antibiotic component.

However, the colony is doomed because, as workers have no apparatus for mating, the eggs will result in unfertilized drone brood laid in small worker cells. 18 | A P R AC T I C A L M A N UA L O F B E E K E E P I N G Competition from other laying workers is intense, and a clear sign of this laying-worker syndrome is the sight of several eggs in a cell. These eggs will often be placed halfway down the cell due to the shorter length of the worker’s abdomen. If at this stage another queen bee is introduced to the colony, the laying workers will invariably kill her (dealing with this problem is examined in Chapter 8).

These recent findings could well be of importance to our understanding of the dynamics of all social animals, including ourselves. THE BIRTH OF A QUEEN Preparing for the birth When the colony requires a new queen – if, for example, the old one dies or becomes old and ineffective in her laying, or for other reasons that will become clear later on in the book – the workers begin to construct queen cups, which are cells on the surface of the comb but facing vertically downwards. If they proceed with the plan, the queen lays fertilized eggs into the cups (the same as worker eggs), and the creation of a new queen begins.
