I am a beekeeper. Will Bifen IT hurt my bees?
Mosquitos are a problem for my family. I have rigged up my sprayer to my leaf blower and this gives me very good coverage to the underside of leaves. I do have flowers that the bees visit.
Bifen IT is highly toxic to bees. You can reduce the risk to your bees by keeping applications away from areas where the bees are actively foraging and at times when the bees are not active in general. You may also consider using Mavrik Perimeter insecticide for outdoor pests, which is non-repellent and non-toxic to honeybees after it is dried. You will want to read the product label to see if this fits your needs.
