“…The development of honeybee colonies is highly influenced by environmental conditions, such as rainfall, temperature, wind speed and patterns of floral resource availability. These conditions may affect the distribution and abundance of honeybee colonies in the wild environment 11 , 12 . AHBs are adapted to seasonally arid habitats and may respond more strongly to rainfall patterns than to photoperiod.…”

“…There are two common behaviors which may contribute to the spread of AHBs in the environment 12 . The first one is the swarming, which occurs during periods of food abundance, when the colony population grows and a new queen emerges, thus making the bees leave the hive with the original queen to search for a new hive site.…”
