Note: The information provided is not an endorsement or recommendation for any particular product. Always read the label before applying and follow the directions. Some of these materials may be tank mixed with other herbicides.

Protection of Pollinators: Look for the “bee-box” or “bee hazard icon” on product labels and read the restricitions and instructions to protect bees and other insect pollinators. Bees and other pollinators will forage on plants when they flower, shed pollen, or produce nectar. Follow these steps when using products that are hazardous to bees: 1) minimize exposure of the product to bees and pollinators when they are foraging on pollinator attractive plants around the application site 2) Minimize drift of the product on to beehives or to off-site pollinator attractive habitat as drift into these areas will kill bees.

Warning: Applications of imidacloprid and clothianidin are restricted to post-bloom and only when bees are not active in the site,including on weeds and non-crop plants.
