Want to make pesticide choices that help protect the bees in your orchard? There is a web-based decision tool to help you developed by the UC Davis IPM Program that you or your clients can use to determine which pesticides are safe to use and which have precautions that should help reduce the impact on bees when certain pesticides need to be applied. You can either view the entire list of materials or use their search function to look up one or more specific products by trade or common name, or filter by use type. You can check out this tool at https://www2.ipm.ucanr.edu/beeprecaution/.
