Abstract: The Small Hive Beetle is the one of the newest and least studied parasites of honey bees. They were introduced to the United States around 1996, traveling from West Africa presumably to South Carolina. Since its introduction to the Americas, the beetle has spread to over 30 states, Canada, and Australia. This beetle has the potential to cause severe economic damage to apiculturists and all agricultural industries that rely on bee pollination for success. This thesis explored the susceptibility of wandering small hive beetle larvae to Malathion, Diazinon, Baythroid, Permethrin, and Lannate LV. Permethrin, marketed as Gardstar, is the only active ingredient registered as a soil drench for small hive beetle control. This study found Baythroid and Lannate LV to be more effective than Permethrin. Baythroid proved to be the most efficacious, with an LC50 of 0.00257% followed by Lannate at 0.00316%. Permthrin produced an LC50 of 0.00571%, Malathion at 0.01663%, and Diazinon at 0.0064%. These data show that Baythroid and Lannate may be effective control strategies for Small Hive Beetles. However, field research on environmental efficacy, residual, and safety must be evaluated.
