In conclusion, the results from the dietary supplement experiments reported here showed that the physical quality of queens and drones reared by dietary-supplemented nurse colonies were no different from that of queens and drones reared by non-supplemented nurse colonies. However, these results were no doubt influenced by experimental variables that became apparent in the experimental approach used as each experiment progressed. An alternative experimental approach is suggested for future studies.
