The novel insecticides flupyradifurone and sulfoxaflor do not...

The decline of insect pollinators threatens global food security.

To explore pesticide–pathogen interactions in an important pollinator insect, the honey bee, we used two new nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonist insecticides (nACHRs), flupyradifurone (FPF)…

New paper: Dietary quercetin impacts the concentration of...

Highlights: Honey bees orally exposed to imidacloprid exhibit reduced metabolism of quercetin. Dietary quercetin reduces the con- centration of imidacloprid absorbed in honey bees. Dietary quercetin does not affect the concentration of tebuconazole or tau-fluvalinate in contact-exposed honey bees.
