dc.description.abstractA commercial product called Beescent® containing a mixture of chemicals including chemicals used by honey bees as pheromones, was applied to watermelons in early bloom on Aug. 15, 1991. Honey bee visitation to treated, 18-row plots, were significantly higher than to untreated for only 2 days, the day of treatment and the next day. Watermelon yields were not effected. The daily high temperatures reached 86-88 °F, so that most of the chemical had volatilized away by the end of the first day.
