A new quantitative analytical method has been established for the rapid determination of flumethrin in honey products using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Sample was dissolved and extracted in the mixture of water and acetonitrile (1:2). The extracts were purified with silica cartridge eluted by the mixture of hexane and dichloromethane (55:45) and analyzed at 266 nm using HPLC. The percentage recovery of flumethrin spiked in sample was found to be 90.2-97.8% and the limit of detection is 0.003 mg/kg. We validated the method for the linearity, the precision and the reproducibility. We investigated the residues of flumethrin in honey products retailed in market using the established method. Flumethrin was not detected at all among 130 samples of honey.
