Olfactory repellency of herbicides to foraging honey bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae)


, : Olfactory repellency of herbicides to foraging honey bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae). Canadian Entomologist, 11110: 1131-1135

Foraging honey bees were offered various sucrose-herbicide solutions. Despite the visual attractiveness of the feeding dishes to foragers, 6 of 7 herbicides significantly reduced the incidence of feeding and were judged to be olfactory and gustatory repellents. The most repellent herbicide was 2,4,5-T, which totally inhibited feeding at concns. as low as 1000 p.p.m. The next most repellent was 2,4-DB, followed by linuron, picloram, 2,4-D and monuron.

We investigated the effects of selegiline and desmethylselegiline on synthesis of neurotrophic factors in cultured mouse astrocytes. Treatment with 2 mM selegiline for 24 h increased the contents of NGF, BDNF, and GDNF in the culture medium 26-, 1...
