    Default Is Portal safe for bees?

    My grower called me this morning to discuss spraying the orange groves where we have our colonies for psyllids and told me he changed the type of spray to one that was "bee friendly". He indicated it was more expensive but bee safe. Does anyone have any experience with this product?

    You might want to ask your question on this thread....there seems to be some folks who're familiar with the pesticides used to combat citrus greening.

    From my understanding if the bees go into a portal you will never see them again because they are in another realm
