Data from: Low dose of neonicotinoid insecticide reduces foraging motivation of bumblebees

Juho Lämsä, Erno Kuusela, Juha Tuomi, Sini Juntunen & Phillip C. Watts
Widespread use of neonicotinoid insecticides, such as imidacloprid, is often associated with diminishing populations of bees; this loss of pollinators presents a concern for food security and may cause unpredictable changes in ecological networks. However, little is known about the potential behavioral mechanisms behind the neonicotinoid-associated pollinator decline. We quantified the effects of low dose (1 ppb) imidacloprid exposure on the foraging behaviour of bumblebees (Bombus terrestris). Individual bumblebees were released into a flight arena...
