In recent years, using of nanoparticles in all areas of industry commonly and effects on both human health and environment with increasing production has worried around the world as well as in Turkey. Before using of these nanoparticles, in order to evaluate results of toxic and environment effects, risk assessment should be carried out. In this study, the aim is to give information about toxic effects of some nanoparticles (titanium dioxide, palladium, platinum and boron) on honeybees. Keywords : Honey bee, nanoparticles, toxicology
