English term or phrase: pregnant queen
Ho visto che per queen si intende l'ape regina. Tuttavia in questo caso non mi sembra appropriato perchè si parla di farmaci per cani e di test eseguiti su animali diversi dai cani, ma comunque mammiferi.
Inoltre non ho mai sentito parlare di "ape regina gravida".
Il termine "queen" è usato per indicare le femmine in generale o ha un altro significato?
Grazie

PS. Frase di riferimento : "XXXXX is not considered teratogenic and no restriction for use in **pregnant queens** or males destined to reproduction is necessary."
