""In horticulture, dolomite and dolomitic limestone are added to soils and soilless potting mixes to lower their acidity and as a magnesium source. Home and container gardening are common examples of this use.""

It shouldn't be a problem for bees. It's just a type of stone.

Dolomite is a mineral. It will have no effect on the bees. They will ignore
it and move on.
