    Every poison has risk but generally if the plants are not blooming your bees are not there so you are safe.
    The plants that are blooming I spray liquid seven on them at dusk after the bees go home and its dried by morning so its somewhat safer than during the day.
    Have t had a major kill yet.
    Good Luck, Mike

    How about telling us what pests you have to kill? I can't think of a single substance from the most benign organic to the most toxic poison, that will kill every and any "garden pest" and leave your bees alone.

    Cut worms and cabbage butterfly catipillars are well controlled with BT and if the bees happen to bring some back to the hive it will help with wax moth larvae.
