Bronze orange bugs

Will chickens be effected if they eat the bronze orange bugs from the ground after I sprayed the Lemon tree with a pesticide?

Answer: Hi Tracey,

One should always exercise caution when using pesticides around chickens and other animals. It could be that the chickens may be interested in eating the dead bronze orange bugs that have have been sprayed with the pesticide. In the best interests of the chickens, all the dead beetles should be removed and disposed of and care should be taken not to allow the chickens to enter the area where the citrus tree is planted until all the beetles that may still be on the tree have died and have been disposed of.

With regard to using something on your lemon tree to control the Bronze Orange Bug, recommend using Yates® Nature’s Way® Citrus & Ornamental Spray.
