Will this pesticide kill bees or my beehive?

Beta-cyfluthrin is toxic to bees and other pollinating insects. Pesticide applicators will not directly spray blooming plants (located along your yard edges, where the treatment will be applied), as specified by the law and indicated on the pesticide label. Additionally, if beta-cyfluthrin were to be sprayed near blooming plants, it will not travel up the plant from roots to flowers after spraying (beta-cyfluthrin is not systemic). Further, beta-cyfluthrin does not readily evaporate (it has very low volatility), and therefore actively pollinating bees will not have a direct way of coming into contact with the spray.
