New Pollinator Labeling

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.

Consumer WARNING - Unregistered Pesticide Products!
Consumers should use caution when buying pest control products. EPA exempts a number of products called "25b" pesticides from registration. Many of these products lack sufficient safety and use information. Many are marketed with false and misleading claims. Avoid buying from door-to-door, online, or telephone sellers. When shopping in your local store, make sure any product you buy has a EPA Registration Number on the label. With bed bugs, brown-marmorated stinkbugs, mosquitoes, and Asian lady beetles affecting our daily lives, we are seeing more "snake-oil" products. If in doubt, contact your local Extension agent for assistance.
