The Q&A Archives: Dusting Vegetables

Question: If I dust my vegetables with Sevin-5 dust, will it stop the bees from pollenating the plants?

Answer: Karen,

If the Sevin Dust gets on plant surfaces where the bees will contact it (especially flowers, but also leaves to some extent), it will kill the bees. Sevin is highly toxic to bees.

Thanks for the question and please let us know if we can be of more assistance!
