Will Sevin Concentrate it hurt the bees?
the bees are busy pollenating. the fly control predators are also busy will this hurt them? I have sprayed squashes, pumpkins and cucumbers once, but not sure if all the bugs are gone.
According to the Sevin Concentrate product label "This product is highly toxic to honeybees and other bees. Do not apply to plants in bloom." Almost all insecticides are toxic to bees as they are non-selective. You can help limit any effect to bees by being careful not to apply the insecticides when bees are actively foraging in the area.
