Was told that the eastern or yellow buckeye was poisonous to honey bees and here at my apiary they work it like wild fire with no problems.

I read the California buckeye was bad for bees but it is not growing here in Ky?

I don't know if the two buckeyes are the same or different, I suspect they may be different as the stuff here is a large bush in the foothills, that I've seen. It is poisonous to the bees, the pollen will kill off the brood.
