EUGENE, Ore. -- A tree service company has apologized for spraying pesticide that killed hundreds of bees last week on trees at a Eugene apartment complex.

JP Mischkot of Glass Tree Services says it accepts the license suspension and sanctions imposed by the Oregon Department of Agriculture.

He told KVAL applicators realized the mistake and notified the department. Volunteers have put shrouds over the trees to prevent more bees from contacting the poison.
