Accidentally Poisoned Bees

Accidentally Poisoned Bees

Postby Hairyloon » Sun Mar 27, 2016 11:04 pm

(A) keeps bees.
His neighbour (B) sprays parts of her garden with a pesticide which it seems the bees have taken back to the hive and destroyed the colony.

Can (B) be held liable? What about (C), the garden centre which sold an inappropriate pesticide?

When I was renting my first house, and we had an unpleasant neighbour who kept bees, my mother suggested we grow garlic. The bees loved the flowers.
