Spraying late evening, no bee activity. If spray of fungicide and insecticide get into blooms but dry overnight, will it still harm the bees?

If you spray the tomato plants in the evening, it will have the least impact on bees. That being said, tomatoes are really not all that dependent on bee pollination. They are mostly wind pollinated. So, while you should be aware of bees and not harm them, your crop of tomatoes is not dependent on them.
