Honey bees are important value creators for all farmers in that they pollinate many crops. This pollination can produce seed crops, some of which self-sow, perpetuating the crop’s value for the farmer e.g. clover in permanent pasture.
To ensure that this partnership prospers it is important to protect honey bees when using pesticides on the farm.
These steps should help farmers and growers protect honey bees when spraying any pesticide.
