I'm fully aware of the affects of Imidicloprid on the bee population. This product should be banned In the U.S. As it has been in Europe. Bee's are our life blood. It's foolish to ignore the facts that half the world has banned this product. I know. I work in the golf industry and have literally used tons. Now I use Acelepryn. Expensive, but much less harmful. And I haven't used Imidicloprid in 4 or 5 years.
