Here I go again.
Today, I sprinkled cinnamon powder around the perimeter of both my hives. This is to keep the ants off the hive, as stated in "Beekeeping for dummies".
Well,perhaps I used a bit to much, because some bees died . Later in the day I went up and they looked ok, but this really gave me a scare. They are really having to smell that cinnamon on the ground now. I think the bees that died, actually fell into the powder or got covered in it.Anyone have any experience on using cinnamon powder to keep ants away??
