The Effect of Different Carbohydrate on Laying Queen and Honey Storage in Honeybee Colonies

A. Asadi Dizaji, H. Moeini Alishah and M. Aragi    

Abstract: In order to explain the effects of substituting the artificial nectar for natural nectar, the factorial experiment has been done five times on the four diets and a control group of 25 colonies on the basis of completely randomized design and it has been studied and statically analyzed. The results indicated that there is 1% difference among diets. But there is non significant difference between right direct and the left hand of the honey comb from the number of larva point view. The mean indicated that there is significant difference among high mean and three treatments of honey, starch + honey and sugar. So in the respect of the food expense for each of these treatments, sugar is introduced as the best food for increasing the number of honeybee population and the blend of starch + honey and honey are at the second and third stages. The above mentioned experiments has been studied in the case of the honey production and indicated that there is a significant difference in the level of probability of 5% among food treatments from the rate of honey production point view. With the respect of the means comparison showed that the food treatment with starch + sugar and starch + honey with high mean, significant difference with each other give better effect to the rate of honey production rather than other food.
