We examined the effects of pollen collected from transgenic corn plants, non-transgenic corn plants, and pyrethroid treated corn plants on the behavior and development of worker honey bees. The parameters tested were the development and mortality of worker eggs, larvae, and adults. We also examined the foraging behavior of adult worker bees after feeding them the aforementioned pollen treatments.
