This study was designed to assess the heavy metals and pesticide residues in honey samples collected from selected villages in Adamawa state, Nigeria. A total of five (5) different natural samples of wild harvested honey were bought from the honey harvesters in Dulwarchira, Gada, Gurum, Kwaja and Muva villages. Heavy metals in the honey samples were determined using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, while pesticides residues were determined using High Performance Liquid Chromatography. The results show that honey sample from Gada contains high concentration of Cr and Mn. Fe and Cd were found to be highest in samples collected from Kwaja
