REBOLLEDO R, Ramón et al. Comparative study of honey and pollen production in a double queen system versus one queen per hive in La Araucanía Region, Chile. Idesia [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.2, pp.139-144. ISSN 0718-3429.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34292011000200018.

ABSTRACT A test was done in the village of Pillanlelbún, Lautaro District, La Araucanía Region of Chile, in order to evaluate the effect on honey production of the pollen harvest, in production systems with one and two queens per hive. The treatments corresponded to six single queen hives with and without an Apefiori pollen trap versus six hives with double queen, with and without pollen trap. The bees used in the test were obtained from nuclei formed with the same quantity of breeding and food cells, as well as having fertilised queens introduced in the season. The results showed no significant differences in honey production for the system with a single queen with and without pollen trap, with an average of 25 kg of honey in the system without pollen traps and 21 kg for the system with pollen trap. The same occurred in the systems with double queens with and without pollen trap (51 kg without pollen trap and 48 kg average with trap). However there were significant differences in honey production between the two types of system (one and two queens per hive). The difference in pollen production was statistically significant with 1.263 kg of pollen in the single queen system versus 2l247 kg in the double queen system. Finally, the pollen harvest did not affect honey production.
