Is Your Organic Insect Control Safe for Bees?

The botanical oils in Organic Insect Control have a targeted mode of action very different than neonicotinoid pesticides that have been linked to honey bee colony collapse disorder. The botanicals are low molecular weight, natural compounds that break down quickly, and do not persist in the environment. These plant oils act on contact and are non-systemic, thereby posing less risk to honeybees that may return to a treated field. 

Furthermore, laboratory and field data confirm that beneficial insects are not only 3-4 times more tolerant to the Organic Insect Control botanicals upon application, but the beneficial insects also return to the treated area almost immediately, within 24 hours of application.
