Maybe not quite the title.
We found out very late last night our entire town was being sprayed for mosquitoes by trucks from 2-5AM. Normally I’d be all over this, but this is our 3rd year with honeybee hives and they’re dangerously susceptible to the spray.
With little options before the spray we wet some sheets and put them over the hives to keep as much mist out as possible.
I then setup a temporary Rachio schedule to water down the lawn at the end of the spray schedule and before the bees would normally start flying out of their hives for the day. I don’t know if it helped or not, but it made me feel better. Hopefully it cleaned off some plants and the areas around the hives even though the girls can fly miles in search of nectar…
