Funded by AgriFutures Honey Bee & Pollination Program researchers at the University of Adelaide have investigated the impact of fungicides on bees. They found that most fungicides are relatively harmless when used on their own. However, some fungicides weaken the bees’ immune system or can increase the toxicity of insecticides. This fact sheet provides best practice advice based on their findings for the pollination of almonds. See below for links to fact sheets for fungicides and bees in canola and  fungicides and bees in apples and pears.
