Abstract:
The experiment was conducted at apiary, Department of Entomology, CCSHAU, Hisar, Haryana in three seasons i.e. winter, spring, and summer from December 2020 to June 2021. Bee venom was extracted from colonies of different bee frame strength using a bee venom extractor of model SB-BVC manufactured from DPS Tech Smart Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, with different exposure periods. The effect of electrical shock on fresh egg rearing was observed in all the experimental colonies. No marked difference was observed due to varying durations of exposure to the bee venom extractor. Though colony growth parameter was in proportional with the bee strength, duration of exposure had no significant effect on honey bee colony fecundity.
