I am a newbie and will be starting my new Flow hive in April. I am more than excited. I have already arranged for there to be no insecticides spared on our lawn. We have had grub control put on our lawn in the past, but the active ingredient in the grub product is Imidacloprid. This is a neonicotinoid that I have been told is “okay” for bees. I am not sure if I believe this and may stop any grub control product. Any opinions? We have also used Seven on plants in our yard. Our roses were attacked by Japanese beetles last year and Seven controlled them quite well. I have read that Seven can also be bad for bees, but I have also read that bees generally ignore red roses and double roses. Any opinion on using Seven on roses? I am an avid landscaper and now will be a beekeeper. As far as I am concerned the bees come first. I would value any opinions.
