Pest Control Safe for Bees: a manual and directory for the tropics and subtropics / Adey M., Walker P., Walker P.T. (1986). International Bee Research Association (IBRA) UK, 224 pp.
The International Bee Research Association recently published, with financial support from the Tropical Development and Research Institute, London, a book entitled 'Pest Control Safe for Bees'. The most common method of pest control on crop plants is the use of insecticides and acaricides. If these chemicals are applied to the crops at flowering time and pollinating bees and other insects are killed, crop yields will decrease. The book is compiled for crop growers, beekeepers and all those manufacturing, or applying pesticides. It will be an important reference book for extension officers who need to inform crop growers about the necessity of bees as pollinators and about controlling pests without killing bees.
