The data was collected exposing Chironomus riparius to sediment spiked with 1µm polystyrene-based latex microplastic spheres, an environmentally realistic concentration of a pyrethroid pesticide (esfenvalerate), and a combination of both treatments. The larvae were observed at 10, 28 days and until the emergence, and Illumina Miseq sequencing of 16S bacterial DNA was performed to obtain the larvae microbiome. Effects on the life-history traits of the benthic-dwelling invertebrate and its microbiome were analyzed. The data could be reuse for meta-analysis related to microplastics effects in aquatic invertebrates.

However, the effects of chronic microplastic ingestion and its interactions with other contaminants and stress factors on aquatic invertebrates' life-history characteristics and host-microbiome are not well understood. Both larvae of the chironomid larvae were also exposed to two food conditions: abundant or limited food in the sediment. Compared to the single exposure, the combined exposure to microplastics and esfenvalerate had some adverse effects on survival and emergence, but there were no evidence for additive reactions. The food intake affected all life-history traits and the microbiota, according to the microbiota, and lower food intakes, raising the negative effects of microplastics, esfenvalerate, and their combination. We discuss potential interactions between microplastics, chemicals, and food levels on both the life-history attributes and the host-microbiome, as well as how direct effects on the microbiome may have a direct effect on the host's life-history traits and the host's life-history characteristics.
