Sevin-10 kills Honey Bees

Mar 15, 2011

Pros:Nothing good comes from killing honeybees

Cons:Seven dust can kill entire colonies of honeybees.
Liquid Seven is preferred if necessary.

The Bottom Line: Do not use Seven-10 or any lawn/garden pesticide in a dust form as it can kill entire honeybee colonies. Use the liquid version applied in the evening.


70% of our food is pollinated by Honey Bees and other bees. Seven dust, and other pesticides in dust form, when applied to blooming plants is picked up by bees in the act of pollinating plants the same way pollen attaches to them. It is then taken back to the hive where it is removed by worker bees and mixed in with pollen and nectar to form bee bread which is then fed to the larva and adult bees. After eating the contaminated bee bread the hive begins to die and can be completely destroyed in just a few days. The result is a continued decline in the global bee population which will negatively impact global food production due to insufficient crop pollenation. There are an increasing number of regions where fruit, vegetable and nut crops must be pollinated by honeybees brought in from other regions or by hand which is both expensive and avoidable. If you must use insecticides for legitimate house or garden pest control, it is recommended that you use the liquid version applied in the evening. In the liquid form it is not as likely to be transported from the flowers back to the hive. It controls pests without killing off entire colonies of honeybees. It is important that we act responsibly and begin to realize the effect we have on our environment and how much we rely on the delicate balance in nature. Please share this with your friends and help protect our honeybees. NC Beekeeper
