Yes, it is toxic to bees if they are sprayed directly. You should not spray on blooming crops where bees are visiting.

Question

Mow before or after application

My grass is kinda long at this point. however I have these tiny flying bugs getting in my house. they are small enough to go through my window screen 30-50 at a time. Don't know what they are, but they bite and swarm.
My plan is to spray right now and mow tomorrow afternoon. What do you advise?

Unless your grass is very long, it won't matter. You should avoid mowing for at least 24 hours after application, however, so it might make sense to do so before.

You should no longer see grub activity within a day after treating. When treating for grubs or other subsurface insects, you should water with about 1/2 inch of water after spraying for best results.

While it's not labeled for use on veggies, you don't have to throw sprayed produce away. Wait at least five days before harvesting, though.

The best time to treat for fall cankerworms is a couple of weeks after they hatch in the spring. Although this product is very effective for subsurface insect control, it likely won't control cankerworm larvae in the soil.
