    Honey Bees Modulate Their Olfactory Learning in the Presence of Hornet Predators and Alarm Component In Southeast Asia the native honey bee species Apis cerana is often attacked by hornets (Vespa velutina), mainly in the period from April to November. During the co-evolution of these two species...

    Pyrethroids Differentially Alter Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels from the Honeybee Central Olfactory Neurons The sensitivity of neurons from the honey bee olfactory system to pyrethroid insecticides was studied using the patch-clamp technique on central ‘antennal lobe neurons’ (ALNs) in cell...

    Impaired Olfactory Associative Behavior of Honeybee Workers Due to Contamination of Imidacloprid in the Larval Stage The residue of imidacloprid in the nectar and pollens of the plants is toxic not only to adult honeybees but also the larvae. Although the sublethal dosage of imidacloprid had no...
