Um bees working rodies and such won't happen. My Bees work Tansy very Toxic if you injest the plant, but the honey is nice. my bees also work the cascara tree and get nice honey from that tree, but don't use any branch from it to roast hot dogs. So don't worry but if you realy want to bake your noodle read the hive and the honey bee I think thats the book its in. and there is one case in the 1800's were a whole town died from honey from a poision plant.BWHAHAHW!

I've never seen bees work either of these plants, but I'm sure on occasion they will.  It is sold as "specialty" honey in many places and has been for centuries.  Not so popular now that Viagra is available...

As far as babies, honey was (and in many places still is) a standard ingredient in baby formula.  In recent years they have recommend NOT to use it because it can contain botulism, but so does common  household dust, raw vegetables and virtually everything else that isn't sterilized or cooked.  I'm not saying you should feed honey to infants, but too pick on honey and not raw vegetables is inconsistent.  A lot of this has to do with immunity, but more so a baby''s digestive  track is not as acidic as an adult's.
