Imidacloprid and the Vanishing Bees

Wed, 25 Apr 2007 23:29:23 PDT
Hello everyone, I use imidacloprid regularly, but only spray late in the 
evening and never spray on the flowers the bees are using.
 we have four thriving bee hives, all on 1 acre of land.  the bees are more 
than happy, and producing mountains of honey.
However, with overhead indiscriminate spraying, yes of course the bees won't 
be happy
