Honeybee Homing Flight Studies

Homing Flight Studies

Testapi participates to different European ring tests with honeybees (Apis mellifera), bumblebees (Bombus terrestris) and solitary bees (Osmia sp)in order to establish OECD guidelines.

The OECD guideline on Honeybee Homing Flight is now issued following to our contribution to the five-year ring test and the redaction of this guideline.

Testapi is a member of the expert group to the last comments on the draft guideline.

Thanks to our expertise in experimentation on pollinators, we already performed this test with success under GLP requirements.
