Diflubenzuron dimilin effect of long term feeding of low doses in sugar cake or sucrose syrup on honey bees apis mellifera in standard size field colonies



Diflubenzuron dimilin effect of long term feeding of low doses in sugar cake or sucrose syrup on honey bees apis mellifera in standard size field colonies



American Bee Journal 122(8): 579-582



Standard-size (10-frame Langstroth) field colonies of honey bees, A. mellifera L., located in an area of limited natural bee forage were fed longterm controlled low doses of diflubenzuron (Dimilin) in sugar cake (1979) and sucrose syrup (1980). Dimilin fed in sugar cake significantly reduced sealed brood when fed at rates of 1.0 or 10 ppm and reduced adult bees when fed at the 10 ppm rate. No level of Dimilin, 0.01, 0.1 or 1.0 ppm, fed in sucrose syrup had any direct detectable effect on sealed brood, the adult bee population or mortality of adult bees.
