Abstract
Bees provide important and economically valuable pollination services to agriculture and other ecosystems. Recent global honeybee declines have been attributed to pesticides, which can ultimately affect the overall functioning and survival of a colony. Various routes of exposure include contaminated beeswax, pollen and nectar. This thesis presents work which examines the presence, accumulation and levels of pesticides found within a number of honeybee related matrices and bumblebee bodies, with four main aims to this study. Firstly, determine which pesticides are contained within beeswax from around the UK. Secondly, monitor which pesticides accumulate in beeswa...
