Studies on effect of different honeybee species combs on the life stages and biological parameters of greater wax moth (galleria mellonella L.) Revealed that the egg, larval, prepupal and pupal periods (days) ranges from 8.60±0.52to 8.70±0.48, 49.30±1.66 to 58.60±3.03, 2.10±0.55 to 2.40±0.50 and 9.65±0.75 respectively on different species of Apis cerana F., Apis dorsata F., Apis mellifera, Apis florae and apis floreae. Similarly the male and female longevity ranges from 16.40±2.84 to 16.00±1.94 and 6.90±0.74 to 6.50±1.18 days respectively on different species combs. Pre-oviposition, oviposition and post-oviposition period ranges from 1.10±0.32 to 1.20±0.42, 4.60±0.70 to 3.90±1.66, 1.20±0.42 to 1.40±0.52 days respectively.

Keywords: Honeybee species, Life stages, Biological parameters, Wax moth, etc.
