Abstract

For toxicity tests with pesticides on adult honey bees, foragers are generally best fitting due to their natural higher exposure in field situations and a general higher susceptibility, partially due to their age (Williams et al., 2013). The official guidelines describe the standardised method that consists in collection from the flight board (EPPO, 2010) or from frames without brood (OECD, 1998; EPPO, 2010).
