As bees forage for pollen, they inadvertently collect pesticides that are returned to the hive and incorporated in hive products including honey and beeswax. Elevated pesticide content in beehives poses risks for human consumers of bee products, and has been implicated as a contributing factor of colony collapse disorder. The purpose of this research is to correlate the identity and amount of pesticides applied within the bee foraging radius to the pesticide content of the hives beeswax.
