Intensity of bee visits during peak period on safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L)

GP Harke, PS Neharkar and PR Zanwar
Investigation on bee visits per meter square per minute during peak intensity periods (10:00 AM-12:00 PM) was undertaken at Department of Agril. Entomology, VNMKV, Parbhani, M.S. (India). It was observed that the activity of bees differed significantly depending on the bee species. Three wild honey bee species, A. dorsata, A. cerana, A. florea, and other pollinators were observed in open pollination, SSS, and CS pollination. On all days of observation, the activity of bee visits was much higher in the SSS colony, followed by CS and open pollination circumstances. The 7th and 14th days following flowering were when the activity peaked. On the seventh day following flowering, the activity of wild bees in the open environment, as well as domesticated bees in the SSS, was much higher.
