A simple and fast analytical method using High Performance Liquid Chromatography with ultraviolet detection (HPLC-UV) was used to determine residues
of commonly used agricultural insecticides (imidacloprid, thiametoxam, profenofos, endosulfan, spinosad and deltamethrin) in multi-floral raw honey of Apis dorsata F.
significantly increases MBC in soil, but decreases specific microbial growth rate, and results a change in microbial community to slower-growing microorganisms, because of limited availability of C related with the low labile C and more lignin in biogas residues
