Assessment of chronic toxicity of selected insecticides to honeybees

Assessment of chronic toxicity of selected insecticides to honeybees

Journal of Apicultural Research 26(2): 115-122

The chronic toxicity of 8 insecticidal organophosphorus compounds (acephate, methamidophos, dimethoate, omethoate, parathion-ethyl paraoxon-ethyl, parathion-methyl and paraoxon-methyl (dimethyl 4-nitrophenyl phosphate)) to honeybees was investigated by a simple laboratory method. Caged bees were provided with sugar syrup containing 0.25-2.00 ppm insecticide for 14 days.
