A honey bee queen will mate with multiple drones (a drone is shown here) during a series of mating flights that occur shortly after she becomes an adult. A new study by researchers at Texas A&M University showed that this “mating frequency” increased among queens that had been exposed to amitraz during development. (Photo by Elizabeth Walsh)
