SHAWKI M. A-A., TÁBORSKÝ V., KAMLER F., KAZDA J. (2005): Effect of two NeemAzalTM formulations on honeybees under semi-field conditions. Plant Protect. Sci., 41: 63–72. The effects of NeemAzalTM formulations: NeemAzalTM T/S (1% azadirachtin) and NeemAzalTM granules (1% azadirachtin) on honeybees, Apis mellifera L., were studied under semi-field conditions. Three plots at 15 m2 each were sown with spring rape seeds Brassica napus cultivar Likolly (Brassicaceae/Cruciferae). In the first plot…

Effects of neem (Azadirachta indica) on honey bee workers and queens, while applied to control Varroa destructor
It was indicated that adequate concentrations of neem oil may control V. destructor without affecting bee colonies, and none of the concentrations used decreased bee population, capped worker larvae or the reserves of honey and pollen.
Effect of plant and animal origin products on growth parameters of Honey Bee, Apis Mellifera (L.) At Pantnagar, Uttarakhand- An eco-friendly and novel approach
Results showed positive effect of pure desi cow urine, buffalo urine, powders of neem leaves and ajwain seeds on growth parameters of honey bees, whereas, the goat urine and cow urine based plant extracts showed adverse effect on the growth parametersof honey bees.


Field Evaluation of Neem and Canola Oil for the Selective Control of the Honey Bee (Hymenoptera: Apidae) Mite Parasites Varroa jacobsoni (Acari: Varroidae) and Acarapis woodi (Acari: Tarsonemidae)
The results suggest that neem and canola oil show some promise for managing honey bee parasitic mites, but the negative effects of treatments to colonies and the lower efficacy against V. jacobsoni compared with synthetic acaricides may limit their usefulness to beekeepers.
Comparative Laboratory Toxicity of Neem Pesticides to Honey Bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae), Their Mite Parasites Varroa jacobsoni (Acari: Varroidae) and Acarapis woodi (Acari: Tarsonemidae), and Brood Pathogens Paenibacillus larvae and Ascophaera apis
Oils are not as selective as the V. jacobsoni acaricide τ-fluvalinate but hold promise for the simultaneous management of several honey bee pests, suggesting neem oil has both a physical and aoxic mode of action.
The effects of azadirachtin on the parasitic mite, Varroa jacobsoni and its host honey bee (Apis mellifera)
Evaluation of the feasibility of using a neem-based (Azadirachta indica) insecticide to control varroa (Varroa jacobsoni) reproduction showed that worker larvae were more sensitive to azadirachtin than adult worker bees, and more research is needed to evaluate the reproductive effects of azadIRachtin on drones, queens, andvarroa under hive conditions.
Honey bee brood ring-test in 2002: method for the assessment of side effects of plant protection products on the honey bee brood under semi-field conditions
The increased brood termination in the control treatment in single trials could be explained by weather conditions in Germany in 2002 and it was rainier than in the previous years and therefore the food supply for the bee brood during the exposure in tents was reduced.
Safety of Azadirachtin to Honeybee, Apis mellifera Linnaeus, Foragers
Safety of NeemAzal (azadirachtin 10,000 ppm) was evaluated at different dosages against Apis mellifera Linneaus Foragers and Triazophos at the recommended dosage was highly toxic with mortality varying from 71.41 to 100% in different tests.
Introduction of indices for the evaluation of tent tests and field tests with honeybees
According to the EPPO-guideline 170 different evaluations are requested in tent tests and field tests with honeybees. Many data are generated as counted or measured values, e.g. for mortality,
Antifertility effects of neem (Azadirachta indica) oil in male rats by single intra-vas administration: an alternate approach to vasectomy.
Results indicate that the testicular effects following intra-vas application of neem oil may possibly be mediated by a local immune mechanism, and this approach to vasectomy for long-term male contraception is described.

The authors' present society can afford to discuss long-term health implications of agents used to control insect pests, and many new and difficult questions have emerged about health and environmental health, giving rise to a distinct area of study called risk assessment.
