Abstract

ALTHOUGH no competent beekeeper is likely to disagree with the general statement that "The secret of large surpluses (of honey) is large colonies", a good many beekeepers will heartily disagree with M. Dugat‘s system of colony management. His system is indeed little more than an extension of the two-queen system of management which has been tried out very thoroughly in the United States and other countries since at least the beginning of this century, and has not been found to yield any notable increase in honey crop per queen over various single-queen systems.
