If I understand your meaning of "systemic" the product is absorbed by the leaves and possibly stems - above ground and not through the root system. I want to be sure that it will not harm bees as the other systemic product which will not be named does. Am I correct? (unless, of course I spray the blossom) Since peonies are mostly affected by the adult black vine weevil after the blossoms have faded and been removed this should not affect bees.

BEST ANSWER: Orthene has been shown to have a effect on bees in citrus fields and has a prolonged effect on them, if you are concerned with bees you should avoid during blossom time for spraying as you suggest.
Has it any effect on black vine weevil?
