Effect of fenoxycarb on honey bee brood


, : Effect of fenoxycarb on honey bee brood. Apicoltore Moderno 83(6): 209-218

Combs containing sealed brood, in Apis mellifera colonies, were sprayed in September and in spring with Insegar solution (containing 50 mg fenoxycarb). About 1-2 weeks after treatment, workers started to remove deformed and damaged drone and worker pupae and prepupae. This behaviour continued for 2-3 months. The colonies were susceptible to European foul brood and sac brood.
