Abstract:The poisonous effect of the California buckeye on the honeybee was shown to have a cumulative effect on the queen to the extent of either preventing the egg from hatching or so weakening the larva that it died soon after hatching. All queens of the same race or of hybrid stock were not affected alike as some showed greater resistance than others. The sap of the buckeye was shown to be poisonous to bees but no bees were observed to gather it after it had oozed from punctures made in the stems by lrbisia solani Heid.
