Application note: Be(e) wary – determination of neonicotinoids in honey

Three honey samples were analysed for neonicotinoid content according to current regulating guidelines via a fast and simple HPLC method.

Neonicotinoids are active substances used in plant protection products to control harmful insects. They are systemic pesticides, which means that they are taken up by the plant and transported through its leaves, flowers, roots, and stems, as well as pollen and nectar.

Neonicotinoids affect the central nerve system of insects, leading to eventual paralysis and death. Three honey samples from different sources were analysed for neonicotinoid content according to current regulating guidelines via a fast and simple HPLC method.
