Okay, I am very worried because my neighbor who is about 100 yards away from me just used ROUNDUP on his honeysuckle and multiple rose bushes which are BOTH in full bloom.....What will this do to my honeybees. Although I specifically informed him of the honeybees present (as a courtesy) and asked him not to spray pesticides he used this this past weekend and now that honeysuckle is nothing but drooping dried up weeds (which is his yard and not my concern) MY ISSUE is this,
does it hurt my honey bees??? We just put on more supers for some were over half capped and I just worry that the roundup will hurt the honey and the bees......I mean they do pollinate these flowers and do visit them (or have in the past) and I just wondered WHAT if anyting will this do.
I do realize it is a herbicide not a pesticide but I don't want any chemicals around them. What should I do?? Should I be worried??? Please, ANY advice would be appreciated. When I asked him about it he said he read that roundup doesn't harm bees... BUT he has NO experience with them whatsoever and I know the knowledge here on this forum will let me know if I need to do something or if it will harm my poor babies! ugh!
thanks in advance for your responses
Sincerely worried, Patty
