    Default Grass Selective Herbicides

    Does anyone know if grass selective herbicides specifically clethodim(Arrow or Select) or sethoxydim(Poast) are harmfull to bees? These would get either non ionic surfactant or crop oil concentrate mixed with them. I have a few acres of clover and am a beginner(getting a package this Sunday) and am going to have to spray to keep the grass down in the clover.
    Thanks

    The University of Florida is doing toxicity studies of herbicides. You might ask them at UF IFAS or just keep it away from the bees. Don't spray when it is blooming.

    Assuming the clover is not in bloom when you spray it should not be a problem for the bees.
