    Default termite fumigation precautions

    I have to have the house tented for termite control. Is there anything I should know or do to protect the bees?

    Have anyone ever answered this? I am suppose to treat this year. Bees aren't too close to the house but still wonder if this could affect. I would think that the insecticides applied in a trench than covered are safe. any thought will be appreciated.

    I've got no personal experience with this.

    If the house is tented, it seems that would prevent the insecticide from reaching the hives, unless the hives were downwind when the tent was removed . . . ?
