Spring of 2012 I used a soil injection of imidacloprid to treat several hemlock trees that had begun to drop needles because of a Hemlock Wooly Adelgid infestation.
January of 2013 European Food Safety Authority found imidacloprid to be in the class of pesticides that pose high risk to bees. As a result I removed all flowering grasses around the treated areas and keep the area cut short.
Today my daffodils started to bloom. I mulched the ground around them with maple leaves and they are held in place with small branches from the hemlocks- now mostly decomposed.

Do my daffodils pose a hazard? Am I doing enough in cutting the grass in the treated areas?

For the Bees,
​Brad
