The systemic imidacloprid is one of the most used insecticides in the world for field and horticultural crops. This neurotoxicant is often used as seed-dressing, especially for maize, sunflower, and rape. Using a LC/MS/MS technique (LOQ = 1 microg/kg and LOD = 0.1 microg/kg), the presence of imidacloprid has been measured in maize from field samples at the time of pollen shed, from less than 0.1 microg/kg up to 33.6 microg/kg. Numerous random samples were collected throughout France from 2000…

Preliminary study on persistence in soil and residues in maize of imidacloprid

TLDR
The values detected showed that maize pollen source should not be relevant for acute toxicity impact on honey bees, and imidacloprid residues <1 μg/kg showed that pesticide persistence in the soil and its residues in pollen and in maize plants showed that.

RESIDUAL BEHAVIOUR OF IMIDACLOPRID IN THE COUNTRY BEAN GROWING SOIL

The assessment of residual behavior of imidacloprid (Admire 20SL) in the soil of country bean agroecosystem and its risk assessment for consumption was studied. QuEChERS method was used for the

Does Imidacloprid Seed-Treated Maize Have an Impact on Honey Bee Mortality?

TLDR
The hypothesis that imidacloprid seed-treated maize has no negative impact on honey bees is supported, and a significant correlation between the number of colonies per apiary and the mortality rates in an apiary is found.

Effect of imidacloprid uptake from contaminated soils on vegetable growth.

TLDR
The plant metabolic analysis of vegetable shoots revealed that IMI may cause oxidative stress to the plant shoots with early exposure, however, the stressful situation of IMI seems to be relieved with the increase of some substances (such as spermidine and phenylalanine with late exposure).

UPTAKE AND METABOLISM OF IMIDACLOPRID IN SUGARCANE AND ITS PERSISTENCE IN SOIL

TLDR
The uptake and metabolism of imidacloprid in sugarcane leaves and soil were studied following application and Bacillus alkaninitricus was found to be more efficient than B. aerophilus and their consortium while, in unsterilized soil, bacterial consortium proved to beMore efficient in imidcloprid degradation.

Phytoremediation of Water and Soil Contaminated with Imidacloprid Pesticide by Plantago Major, L.

TLDR
The growing cells of short-rod gram-negative bacteria that isolated from the water solution containing broadleaf plantain plants was able to induce 93.34% loss of imidacloprid as a source of both carbon and nitrogen within a short period (48 hr) compared with 31.90% in un inoculated medium.

Insecticide residues in pollen and nectar of a cucurbit crop and their potential exposure to pollinators.

TLDR
Levels of neonicotinoid residues in pollen and nectar from a pumpkin crop treated with formulated products containing imidacloprid, dinotefuran, and thiamethoxam using different timings and application methods were measured.

Movement of Soil-Applied Imidacloprid and Thiamethoxam into Nectar and Pollen of Squash (Cucurbita pepo)

There has been recent interest in the threat to bees posed by the use of systemic insecticides. One concern is that systemic insecticides may translocate from the soil into pollen and nectar of

PERSISTENCE AND FATE OF CARBOSULFAN AND IMIDACLOPRID RESIDUES IN POTATO

The present study was carried out to investigate the residual behaviour of carbosulfan and imidacloprid insecticides on potato plants (leaves and tubers). The initial deposits of carbosulfan and

Risk posed to honeybees (Apis mellifera L, Hymenoptera) by an imidacloprid seed dressing of sunflowers.

In a greenhouse metabolism study, sunflowers were seed-treated with radiolabelled imidacloprid in a 700 g kg-1 WS formulation (Gaucho WS 70) at 0.7 mg AI per seed, and the nature of the resulting

A LC/APCI-MS/MS method for analysis of imidacloprid in soils, in plants, and in pollens.

TLDR
For the first time, this study permitted us to follow the fate of imidacloprid in the environment and it is suggested that pollens from these crops are contaminated at levels of a few micrograms per kilogram, suggesting probable deleterious effects on honeybees.

Metabolism of imidacloprid in Apis mellifera.

TLDR
The results suggested that the immediate neurotoxicity symptoms are due to the action of imidacloprid, whereas 5-hydroxyimidcloprid and/or olefin are involved in honeybee mortality.

Imidacloprid Insecticide Soil Metabolism in Sugar Beet Field Crops

TLDR
The imidacloprid soil metabolism was studied in a new organic fertilizer trial made on another field at Lubbeek in 1993 and in a sugar beet trial located at Remicourt, one part of the field had not been treated with organic fertilizers for 18 years, but its soil contained a high concentration of soil organic matter.

Characteristics of imidacloprid toxicity in two Apis mellifera subspecies

TLDR
Imidacloprid ranks among the more potent contact insecticides in this important pollinator species, and response kinetics showed that mortality was delayed at the higher doses of imidaclobrid.

In vivo distribution and metabolisation of 14C-imidacloprid in different compartments of Apis mellifera L.

TLDR
The results explain the prolongation of imidacloprid action in bees, and particularly the differences between rapid intoxication symptoms and late mortality.

ICON rice seed treatment toxicity to crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) in experimental rice paddies.

TLDR
Results demonstrate that label instructions adequately protect crayfish in a rice‐crayfish cropping scenario when ICON is applied at maximum application rates as a seed treatment.

EVALUATION OF THE TOXICITY OF IMIDACLOPRID IN WILD BIRDS. A NEW HIGH PERFORMANCE THIN LAYER CHROMATOGRAPHY (HPTLC) METHOD FOR THE ANALYSIS OF LIVER AND CROP SAMPLES IN SUSPECTED POISONING CASES

TLDR
A high performance thin layer chromatography technique was developed and applied successfully to birds found dead after a known exposure to the compound and indicates that imidacloprid accounts for the majority of the toxic residues detected in the tissues and organs of affected animals.

Discrepancy between acute and chronic toxicity induced by imidacloprid and its metabolites in Apis mellifera

TLDR
Oral acute and chronic toxicity of imidacloprid and its main metabolites and their main metabolites were investigated in Apis mellifera to study the rapid appearance of neurotoxicity symptoms and bee mortality induced only 72 h after the onset of intoxication.

Imidacloprid residues in Willapa Bay (Washington State) water and sediment following application for control of burrowing shrimp.

TLDR
Imidacloprid applied directly to exposed sediments when the tide is out is efficacious for burrowing shrimp control but lacks studies of its behavior in the estuary, and its rapid dissipation from water was hypothesized to be due to extensive dilution by the tide.
