This study aims to determine the success rate and wings morphometric on Apis cerana queen rearing based on differences in wax sources (Apis cerana, Apis mellifera, Apis dorsata and their mixtures) as artificial queen cell cups. This study was used six replications and six treatments (P1: 100% Apis cerana wax; P2: 100% Apis mellifera wax; P3: 100% Apis dorsata wax; P4: 50% Apis mellifera wax + 50% Apis cerana wax; P4: 50% Apis cerana wax+50% Apis dorsata wax; P6: Apis mellifera wax+50% Apis dorsata wax). The results showed that the different sources of wax as a material of queen cell cups did not affect on the success rate of rearing Apis cerana queen bee (P>0.05). The highest percentage of larvae acceptance was found in the P5 treatment, namely 70% and the lowest found in the P1 and P3 treatments, namely 40%. The highest percentage of larvae to pupae was found in treatment P1, namely 75% and the lowest percentage of larvae to pupae was found in treatment P6, namely 20%. Moreover, the different sources of wax as a materials of queen cell cups did not affect on morphometric hind wing length, hind wing width, fore wing length, fore wing width, cubital (A, B), distance C, distance D, cubital index, radial field, inner wing length, inner wing width, dumbbell index, and wing radial cell (I, II, III, IV) queen bee Apis cerana. It can be concluded that the use of different beeswax as materials queen cups did not bring any effect on the success rate of rearing queen and wing morphometrics Apis cerana.
