New pesticide labels aim to keep bees safe
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- New pesticide labels have been released to protect honeybees in California.
Federal regulators say the labels will keep bees safe from pesticide exposure. The labels will have a bee advisory box and icon detailing routes of exposure and spray drift precautions.
Some bee keepers have lost up to 50-percent of their colonies this year alone. Bees are very important to growers in California because they are key to pollinating many crops.
