I don't know. I guess all glue is toxic. However. I don't believe the bees can get at it in any way. All the inside is cleaned off and the outside is painted. I have never seem any ill effects from it.

Hello [USER=72]@Trevor Gillbanks[/USER] - on the glue issue - where do you purchase the glue from? If the toxicity becomes an issues there is a product called MegaGrip - this is a non toxic high strength glue used in framing [URL="http://intex.co.nz/shop/Consumables/Adhesives/PlasterX+Mega+Grip+Stud+Adhesive+Sausages/x_sku/6TSA08.html"]INTEX | PlasterX Mega Grip Stud Adhesive[/URL] Being sausage form it is a lot cheaper also

I buy mine from Bunnings. I like gorilla because of the better gap filling and long life exterior. Toxicity is not a problem. Really there is none inside the box as I clean it all up.
