How does being a Bee City impact the use of herbicides?

By using appropriate pesticide selections for the issues presented, they can be used effectively and safely. Along with selection, timing of pesticide applications is also crucial in staying bee-friendly. Dandelions that pop up in the spring are bee’s first food source. Dandelion treatment is postponed until other plants flower in the spring in order to preserve this important early season food source for bees.
