Abstract

LD50 for worker honey bees of unknown ages exposed to topical applications was 1.5 micrograms/bee in 24 hours. LD50 for similar bees fed ronnel in sugar syrup was 3.0 micrograms/bee in 24 hours. Honey bees did not visit materials treated with ronnel in laboratory tests where bees had a choice between food with and without ronnel added.
