these granules say they can be used on vegetables and plant matter that is to be eaten and comsumed by humans. I couldn't find anything on the packaging that said it was negative for bees. I have been thinking about Gineas a lot.

I have used tick granules in years past with no damage to the bees. Spread the granules just at dark and water them in or do it just before a rain.

It your talking the granules. You will be ok... they soak into the ground.... I outa know. I loaded 40 pounds in my Bee yard all the way up to my hives. No dead bees and its been a month ago......
Several others in my Bee Club use them also with no ill effects.

I used them for ticks, but also for ants.. They are bad in my area this year too. Ticks are worse than I have seen in years......
