It is often the point of discussion - too wet, too dry, too cloudy, etc. There are some occasions that the weather causes damage to crops, animals, and farm structures. If your farm has been damaged by storms, please call the Extension Office so that we can record the damage. This information will be used to help compile damage estimates that will be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors and United States Department of Agriculture. In some occasions, areas can qualify for assis- tance to help clean-up, repair, and rebuild. Please call the Extension Office at 276-889-8056 to report agricultural damage. Protecting Honeybees The poisoning of honey bees and other beneficial insects by insecticides can be a serious problem. Honey bees provide a valuable service to agriculture because they are the most important pollinators of cultivated crops. They also produce honey and beeswax. Efforts should be made to protect honey bees whenever pes- ticides are used. Causes of Bee Poisoning . Most bee poisoning occurs when insecticides are applied to crops in bloom. This includes crop plants such as sweet corn, which is routinely sprayed when in tassel. Honey bees collect pollen from corn tassels. The application of insecticides to fields with weeds that are in bloom. The spring application of insecticides to alfalfa fields with flowering weeds is a par- ticular problem in Virginia. Drift of toxic sprays or dusts onto adjoining crops or weeds that are in bloom. The contamination of flowering ground-cover crops in orchards when spray applications are made. The contamination of water. This includes water collected by bees for drinking and cooling the hive as well as contact with contaminated water or dew on foliage or flowers. The most serious problems occur when bees collect contaminated pollen or nectar and carry these materials back to the hive. Insecticidal dusts (particularly Sevin) and encapsulated insecticides are especially dangerous because they "stick" to foraging bees and may be collected and stored in the hive with pollen. Such materials can cause serious bee kills within the hive for many months. Ways to Reduce Bee Poisoning 1.When using pesticides that are hazardous to bees, notify the beekeeper so that he may move or protect his hives. 2.Do not apply insecticides that are toxic to bees to crops in bloom. 3.Use insecticides that are less toxic to bees when such choices are consistent with pest control recommendations. Call the Extension Office to see if products less toxic to bees are available. 4.Choose the least hazardous formulations when possible. Dusts and encapsu- lated insecticides are more toxic than sprays of the same material. Wettable pow- der sprays tend to have a longer residual effect (and are more toxic) than emulsi- fiable concentrate sprays. Granular applications are usually the safest method'of treatment around bees. 5.AvOid drift of toxic sprays onto ground-cover plants, weeds, and crops in nearby fields. 6.Control weeds in fields and avoid direct insecticide applications to flowering weeds whenever possible. 7.If ground-cover plants in orchards are in bloom (like white clover), mow before spraying. 8.Apply insecticides when bees are not actively foraging, either in the late evening or early morning. This is particularly important with crops such as corn where evening applications avoid many problems since pollen release occurs in the moming. In general, evening applications are least hazardous. 9.Avoid direct treatment over colonies or hives. For a listing of insecticides and their toxicity levels to honey bees, please call the Extension Office (889-8056). ii !il ....... .......... ...........
