Q: In the Nov/Dec 03 issue of the Countryside Journal a reader mentions that he heard on your radio program that cinnamon is toxic to ants. I have beehives and sometimes ants invade the beehives.Would cinnamon be toxic to bees? K.D.
A: Cinnamon is more a repellent than a killing material so the danger would be minor to the bees. I think it would be worth a try.
