Summary

Bumble bees can be used as vectors to distribute different powdery bioprepartions to control plant pest and diseases. The aim of the study was to test the safety of four powdery substances: wheat flour (used as negative control), bioinsecticide Botanigard 22 WP (based on
entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana), biofungicide Prestop Mix (based on soil fungus Gliocladium catenulatum) and kaolin, which is an inert clay mineral used as carrier in Prestop Mix. The effect of those substances on the metabolic rate and water loss of bumble
bee foragers after topical treatment was measured using flow-through respirometry.
