Getting ready to build my first swarm traps and a thought popped into my head.
There are poisonous wildflowers and plants that grow in our region. Some of which grow on and near our property. How will the nectar and pollen from these plants effect the honey? Will the honey become too poisonous to consume? (I really want to harvest raw honey!)
I have a field guide that identifies the certain poisonous species of flowers and plants in Texas.
Some are of the nightshade family, some of the Buttercup family, and some of others (but I've only seen a handful of those on the property).
I can't seem to find a lot of information online about the effects of these certain wildflowers and plants' nectar and pollen.
Honestly, there isn't a whole lot of these types of plants compared to the other non-poisonous types on the property, but I am still concerned because I have anxiety!
