ABSTRACT

Kin selection theory predicts that in colonies of social Hymenoptera with multiply mated queens, workers should mutually inhibit (“police”) worker reproduction, but that in colonies with singly mated queens, workers should favor rearing workers’ sons instead of queens’ sons. In line with these predictions, Mattila et al. (Curr Biol 22:2027–2031, 2012) documented increased ovary development among workers in colonies of honey bees with singly mated queens, suggesting that workers can detect and respond adaptively to queen mating frequency and raising the possibility that they facultative police. In a follow-up experiment, we test and reject the hypothesis that workers in single-patriline colonies prefer worker-derived males and are able to reproduce directly; we show that their eggs are policed as strongly as those of workers in colonies with multiply mated queens. Evidently, workers do not respond facultatively to a kin structure that favors relaxed policing and increased direct reproduction. These workers may instead be responding to a poor queen or preparing for possible queen loss. More... »
