Abstract: Apiculture is subject to attacks by plagues, which impair productivity of the apiary and, consequently, the revenue of the producer. To control these diseases veterinarian management techniques and the application of veterinary drugs such as oxytetracycline, chloramphenicol, streptomycin and sulfathiazole are employed. Nevertheless, residues of these antimicrobial agents can be present in honey, exposing the consumer to health risks in consequence of their ingestion. The aim of this work is to discuss the consequences of the use of veterinary drugs in the apiculture, considering the aspects related to consumers health, regulation and international trade of honey. © 2006 Sociedade Brasileira de Toxicologia.
