kill.jpgThe County Mosquito Control plane made a pass this AM at 0930 hrs here in town!! They did the same last year but this am it was dead calm. Just checked my hives here and they are bringing the dead ones out and starting a nice pile of dead bees. Fire Ants are doing their thing.
The County Bee Association tried their best to stop the spraying except at dark. No telling how many already foraging are dead.
I know the skeeters are bad and WestNile disease is here but I sure hate to see the insecticide killing bees.
Treatment free no matter how hard you try is always a failure, even if the bees make it without hive treatments. Plus neighbors love the handheld foggers and no telling what insecticide they are using.
