Evaluation of Potential New Insecticides and Fungicides for Honey Bee Repellency in Seed Carrots

Series/Report number: 
COARC2016
Abstract: 
To insure honey bee safety during crop pollination, potential new products were screened for bee repellency. This research was conducted in a carrot steckling field at the Central Oregon Agricultural Research Center (COARC). Bee visits were counted beginning one day after bees were brought into the field and continued for a total of four counts. There was no statistical difference between treated and untreated plots, indicating no detrimental effect on bee activity from these products.
