Roundup is toxic to bees, but is way down on the list of products. It didn't make the highly toxic, nor the mildly toxic lists. It is listed on the relatively non-toxic list. I would remove any and all blooms in the area to be sprayed, then spray at or very near night. Also, most labels now are written with the honeybee in mind, so be sure and follow the label directions explicitly and I don't think you will have any problem.
thank you for your help. I noticed today that there are really tiny black ants getting into the sugar water I put in one of my hives. Is this a potental problem for the bees and how do I get rid of them?
Please be aware that Round Up kills amphibians! My lizards, newts, frogs and toads are valuable to me as mosquito eaters, so you have to weigh the consequences. As for me, I'm totally organic and I either weed with two hands, a manual weeder or my propane torch!
Try diatematcious earth ( Yeah probably spelt wrong ) anyway made up for pool filters, from ground up shells from clams, oysters like talcum powder, but extremely detremental to most other things that crawl through is, sharp crystals damage breathing tubes, and body segments bee's don't seem attracted to it.

Is it true??? If a man is alone in the woods, and a lady isn't there to hear him and he speaks, is he still wrong?
