Re: Florida beeks seeing affects of neonictinoids
I'm not familiar with admire but a google search shows, now this chemical has more labels than I have ever seen. I copied part of one label below.
Important details include:
•Change in the annual amount that can be applied to young citrus trees 5 to 9 feet tall in Florida
•Application to this tree size class cannot occur between November 1 and full petal fall <--- now only pertains to the new change for the infection from the original poster
•Changes only apply to the specific tree size targeted with this request
•The SLN approval is for a fixed period which ends Dec. 31, 2014
so the way I read this label, and this was for a drench not spray, they can't do the drench between Nov 1 and full petal fall.
were your bees in the orchard or was it another orchard that did the spray?
what are the bee friendly, less toxic chemicals that can be user?
