From: Pesticide reduces bumblebee colony initiation and increases probability of population extinction

Fig. 2

Event history curve showing the cumulative probability of egg laying (from the end of hibernation (0 days) until the first egg was laid) by B. terrestris queens exposed to either the pesticide thiamethoxam or a control. Total sample sizes for each treatment group were: control, n = 98; and pesticide n = 99 (includes queens that survived the entire experiment only).
