Abstract:
Studies on biology of T. laeviceps revealed that the queen laid single egg into brood cells filled up with honey and pollen and a worker bee quickly sealed the brood cell though resin mixed with wax. The egg was smooth, cylindrical and light creamish in colour. The egg, larval and pupal period of T. laeviceps was recorded as 5.37±0.81, 11.20±0.81 and 31.83±1.35 days. The total period of development from egg to adult was 48.77±1.74 days. The colour of newly emerged adult was light yellowing brown. The body of the developed worker bee was shiny black. The abdomen was blackish brown.
