Experimental results of potential toxicity of copper sulfate in the control of varroatosis of bees



Experimental results of potential toxicity of copper sulfate in the control of varroatosis of bees



Comptes Rendus des Seances de la Societe de Biologie et de ses Filiales 182(5): 466-477



Copper sulfate was administered to honeybee (Apis mellifera) hives at 0.2-1.0 g/litre in 5-10 litres sucrose syrup for the control of the ectoparasite Varroa jacobsoni. The rate of absorption was inversely related to the concentration. The efficacy of this treatment was 80-99%. Mortality of bees was not related to total intake of copper sulfate. A low short-term increase in copper residues was detected in the bodies of treated hives. Observed concentrations ranged from 0.6 to 5.7 mg/kg.
