The Q&A Archives: pesticides

Question: When is the best time of day to spray the garden, in order to avoid spraying when all the pollinaters are present?

Answer: Pollinating insects are normally active just about dawn and then go back home just before dusk. If you can wait until late afternoon or early evening, you'll be doing our beneficial pollinators a favor. Or, if you choose a cloudy day when some of the flowers are closed, the spraying won't bother too many pollinators.

Three cheers for you in being such a responsible gardener!
