Boric Acid is also very deadly to bees. In fact, bees can take the powder back 
to the hive in which it can kill off in just a few days. Most anything that is

they prefer you use ant bait in little cans with holes in them so the ants can 
get to the bait but bees are too big to fit through the holes.

"Bifenthrin has been banned in Europe since mid-2011. It is a pyrethroid and is 
probably toxic to bees."
Yes, very toxic to bees.
"Bifenthrin is highly toxic to fish and small aquatic organisms. It's also very 
highly toxic to bees."
