Abstract:

To study the comparative foraging behaviour of A. cerana and A. florea bright sunny day and cloudy day an experiment was conducted in the apiary of foraging activity of little bee, during June, 2007 at Regional Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences, Gandhi Krishi Vignana Kendra, Bangalore, which is located at an altitude of 930M, latitude and longitude of 12058 N & 77031 E respectively. The results of comparison study showed that A. cerana recorded significantly more number of nectar gatherers over A. florea in both bright sunny and cloudy day. A.cerana started foraging early in morning when compared to A. florea in both bright sunny and cloudy day. Number of outgoing bees in A.cerana and A. florea recorded higher in bright sunny compared to cloudy day.
