Specimens of Apis mellifera L. were caged at measured distances and placed at random locations in cages and as bee colonies in Maryland communities receiving ULV malathion, pyrethrum, and naled sprays for control of adult mosquitos. ULV and conventional mist blower applied dilute malathion resulted in extensive losses of caged bees except at 300-m distance. Night application ULV malathion had no discernible effect on the bee colonies nor did the other 2 ULV formulations. Day application of either conventionally diluted or ULV malathion resulted in consistent losses to bee colonies in communities receiving adult mosquito sprays.
