The Roundup Thread
This is a kind of spin off from another thread, to discuss roundup.
I've been hearing for some time now, that roundup is damaging to bees. Personally, I use roundup to kill weeds around my hives and have also advised others to do the same. I've sometimes got roundup on the bottom board and a lot of bees when I've sprayed, and never seen any bad effect.
But it has been claimed roundup is very bad for bees, and where there is smoke maybe there is fire?
Any opinions? Or any known research on this?
