Abstract: The Effect of Neonicotinoids on foraging behaviour of honey bees on safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) at Department of Agriculture Entomology, College of Agriculture, Parbhani during Rabi 2016-17. The Effect of imidacloprid 17.8% SL insecticides spraying at full dose and visit of honey bees initially low on 1st day after spraying (was in the range of 1.66 to 1.00 bees/m2) followed by 5th day after spraying (was in the range of 1.66 to 2.00 bees/m2). The visit of honey was initially high on 14th day after spraying and found at par (in the range of 3.33 to 4.00 bees/m2) with honey bees observed before spraying of imidacloprid 17.8 SL followed by 10th day after spraying (in the range of 2.00 to 3.00 bees/m2). The Effect of imidacloprid 17.8% SL spraying insecticides at half dose and visit of honey bees was initially high in before spraying of insecticides (5.66 to 7.33 bees/m2) and initially low on 1st day after spraying (was in the range of 2.00 to 3.33 bees/m2) followed by 5th day after spraying (was in the range of 2.33 to 3.00 bees/m2). The visit of honey was initially high on 14th day after spraying and found at par (in the range of 5.00 to 5.33 bees/m2) with honey bees observed before spraying of imidacloprid 17.8 SL followed by 10th day after spraying (in the range of 2.33 to 4.00 bees/m2). However results revealed that the comparison of full dose and half dose of imidacloprid among which at half dose of imidacloprid has found to more visits of honey bees than the full dose of imidacloprid spraying on safflower.
