    Anyone know the effects on Bees ???

    Full chemical name is Bifenthrin 7.9... I guess it is some sort of Pyrethroid


    It is the active ingredient in Mosquito business that is spraying/fogging around town

    want to tell the guys when would be best if they have to fog close to hives

    Around here they spray just after dark and usually post signs a day or two ahead of time.

    Great. They'll be spraying all the flowering trees and bushes and lawns of dandelions along the streets I suppose.
