Fiesta weed control – is it safe for the bees

(Question)

My husband wants to use Fiesta weed control on our lawn. Their website says its environmentally safe but I’d like to have non-bias opinion regarding it’s safely for the bees, please.

(Answer)

Fiesta is permitted under Ontario’s pesticide/herbicide ban and, unlike  neonicotinoids,  is not directly harmful to bees.  However, it can have a detrimental effect on their health by eliminating flowering plants that they feed on such as clover and dandelions.
