Capsaicin and Honey Bees

Here is yet another response to misinformation claiming Hot Pepper will kill honey bees.  First of all, you cannot believe everything you read on the Internet with so many sites nothing more than someone's opinion.  Second, hot pepper (capsaicin) does not kill bees. Capsaicin as a spray seems to act like an insect repellant, however, locked into a cylinder, capsaicin is not going to affect anything except for mammals attempting to eat it.
