Dragoon Dust, according to their own label, is highly toxic to fish and bees. They warn not to get this anywhere near a water source nor use where bees can come into contact, even on blossoms. I would rather live with a few grasshoppers that escape toads, birds, and picking, than to use a product that would kill fish and bees.
Yes, Dragoon Dust is toxic to fish and bees. By all means we always recommend using sprays and powders as a last resort. Preventative measures and hand picking work great if started early. As for our garden we are left with no other choice but to eradicate the buggers using Dragoon Dust. We have been infested, our garden is adjacent to several large farms that recently cut their hay which caused the grasshoppers to flock to our garden. Also- we have no water source nearby or any known bee hives.
