Authors : Izzet Akca, Celal Tuncer, Ahmet Guler and Islam Saruhan

Abstract: The study, efficacy of three insecticides including Carbaryl, Carbosulfan and Methiocarb were evaluated in laboratory bioassays and lethal concentrations were determined against honeybee adults. The highest toxicity based on LC50 values was observed in carbosulfan (1.3 mg AI L-1). The LC50’s (mg AI L-1) for methiocarb and carbaryl in topical application method were 65.9 and 71.7, respectively.
