Beehives and other pollinators are sensitive to the insecticides that Northeast Tree Spray applies. We strive to apply insecticides when the presence and activity of pollinators is lowest. We can take additional steps to contact beekeepers if we know there is a hive in the area that we are applying.
We encourage beekeepers to register their hives at driftwatch.org. This is the website the we and many applicators in Colorado are using to track active hives and speciality crops. If we are applying in the area of a hive on this website we will contact the keeper 24+ hours before application to ensure they can protect their population.
Northeast Tree Spray understands the importance of pollinators to our food supply. We do not want to contribute to any hive decline and want to work with those that protect hives.
