    I am experiencing mass insecticide spraying in my neighborhood.  A mosquito control company out of Fort Collins come into the block every two to three weeks at 10:00 a.m. and sprays everything, bushes, trees, flowers anything and everything in bloom.  My bees are dying and I am sure this toxin is being tracked into the hive.  Any suggestions about how I help my bees short of moving them?  And if I chose to move them, any ideas where they might be moved that is safe from humans.

    I think you should take help from the experts from pest companies like rocklin pest control. Professionals like these can identify the exact pest problem and location and the most effective ways of treating the problem of pest removal and this would also help you to save your bees.

    You need to find out what company is doing this and tell them that they must notify you before they spray. If they are intentionally spraying flowering plants then they are I beleive in violation of the law.

    If you can get them to notify you then you can cover your hives when they are spraying. They should only be spraying for mosquito before sunup or late dawn anyway.

    You should also bring this up in the facebook group as there are others there that may have other ideas for how to proceed.
