It's easy to say something is ok when it doesn't affect you.
If the guy next door applied herbicide to my yard, he would repair the damage. When the guy next door wants to apply pesticide to his yard then I hope my bees avoid his yard. The farmer next door has his job, just like you. Do you go talk to all the farmers around your bee's, does the farmer next door know you have bee's next door.
