With honey bee populations in crisis, more attention has been given to protecting pollinators from pesticides. Recently, the EPA revised pesticide labeling to bring more awareness to protecting honey bees. This can be found under a new bee advisory box on pesticide labels.
- Do NOT apply or drift pesticides onto blooming plants.
- Pollinators can be affected by exposure to all types of pesticides when gathering nectar.
- Contaminated nectar can kill entire hives.
