Creek Hill’s SAFER FOR BEES program covers all plugs now shipping. We focus our pest control on beneficial insects, horticultural oils, and biological pesticides.
SAFER FOR BEES means we also grow with screened houses, probiotic soils, and aggressive scouting. Creek Hill plugs do not ship with neonicotinoids, recently identified as possible culprits in the decline of honeybees.
Neonicotinoids are systemic chemicals that work their way into the plant tissues, including pollen. When bees harvest the pollen, they take the pesticide back home to the hive where it can cause damage.
SAFER FOR YOU also means that you, your staff, and your own efforts to save the bees are protected. We continue to work closely with biological suppliers and consultants to refine our sustainable production system even further.
