But there were problems. Even though the haplodiploidy hypothesis is still associated with the study of evolved social behaviors, it has been out of favor with experts since 1976, when Robert Trivers and Hope Hare showed how males factor into relatedness.

The evolutionary burden of raising low-value brothers would therefore offset the advantages of rearing high-value sisters.
