I’m not concerned particularly, the pellets are only effective for up to 8 weeks, long enough to deal with my early spring aphid problem that finishes once the new growth hardens off.

By the time the bees are active in summer the frequency of watering will have flushed any residue from the pot, and they aren’t puncturing the cells of the moss to drink, so they won’t be ingesting it through the plants in that way either.

Tim, what are you using? Only 8 weeks sounds good especially for Azalea lace bug.
Cheers
