Abstract

During the warmer months the infiltration of ants into an apiary can provide the beekeeper with some serious problems. At a time when his thoughts should be on extraction and honey crop problems, the hive-owner is little interested in studying the habits of various attacking ants, and cannot afford to waste valuable time in devising methods of ant eradication.
