Sara from Sarasota, Florida writes,

Will Altriset harm pollinating insects such as bees and butterflies?

I have butterfly shrubbery around my house and am wondering if bees, butterflies, hummingbirds will be affected from Altriset being used where the shrubs are planted.


Altriset Termiticide is labeled to be used in the ground for termite treatments. If bees and/or butterflies come in contact with the treated soil, it has the potential to harm them. Hummingbirds are not generally around the dirt in areas where the product would be.
