Q.Cinnamon On Tree Bark

Zone carrollton ohio 44615 | Anonymous added on August 15, 2022 | Answered

HELLO I used cinnamon powder mixed with water into a paste to deter yellow jackets from their hole at the base of my maple tree i also had some kind of bee eating the area where a small area of the bark was missing. I also applied some cinnamon paste there. This chased off all the bees my question is will cinnamon hurt the non bark area ? I read where you can use cinnamon on roots for starting plants.. Thankyou
