Re: Will bees move queen larva?? Weird emergency cell placement...
I've read that 1% of apis mellifera have the gene to perform Thelytoky. Is that one per cent of the general population of bees, or is the gene found in a small portion of the total population? I suppose the medical term for the distribution of the gene would be 'penetrance'. Has the gene been secluded to that small group of bees naturally found in South Africa, or is the gene found in one per cent of honey bees as they are now scattered around the world?
