    Default Emerald ash borers treatment and bees

    I have several ash trees I want to treat for EAB this summer, before I lose them. Does anyone have info on the pesticides currently being used and bee mortality? Ideally I will keep my bees and my trees.
    Thanks!

    I do not know the insecticides used to treat EAB. Most, if not all, insecticides will have high bee mortality, if the bee comes in contact with it. Timing and method of application will make exposure to bees almost nil. It is kind of like putting on bug spray. It will hurt if you spray it in your eyes. If you don't spray it in your eyes it won't make your eyes hurt. I'm not sure that ash trees are much of a pollen or nectar source for bees. Applications after bloom would further limit bee exposure.
