I have just received a phone call from a farmer who gave me advanced notice that he will be crop spraying near to one of my out apiaries soon using Stealth.

I have just read the Environmental Information Sheet STEALTH MAFF/MAPP 4551
Found at:

http://www.voluntaryinitiative.org.uk/_Attachments/resources/1256_s4.pdf

and find it very contradictory. i.e.

No risk management as far as bees are concerned and yet it is a broad range insecticide!!!

I am lucky to have the co-operation of all surrounding farmers, but as this guy says, "we cant fully understand what they are saying", but I will be implementing risk management anyway.

Sorry girls, being locked in for a day soon.
