Bees and nonselective herbicides

Sometime this year, the hayfields at the farm where my bee are living will be sprayed with a nonselective herbicided to remove all the fecsue. This probable won't happen until the Fall. I was wondering if anyone has any information about how this might affect my bees.

Probably not Roundup,It would also kill the hayfield.Not knowing for
sure,but my quess would be a formulation of 2,4-d. It is a weedkiller for broadleaf weeds in hayfields and other grasses.
