Is Crop Control Harmful to Bees?

When applied at preventive dilution ratios, Crop Control should not harm any variety of bees, wasps, hornets, or beneficials like ladybugs. If you were to spray a bee directly with Crop Control, it is likely to escape by flying away, returning after the product dries on the plant. Resident ladybug populations are often found on plants in as little as an hour after being sprayed.

Soft bodies insects are more susceptible than insects with a hard chitin shell. So, bees can withstand a small direct hit, which can happen with a standard application of the product.

With that being said, Crop Control is a contact kill pesticide. It will kill most any insect if applied directly onto its body at a strong enough dose.
