mountain laurel, Kalmia latifolia, is blooming in our woods. I read the plant is poisonous to horses, goats, cattle, deer, monkeys and humans. Even honey made from the flowers is poisonous and is called toxic honey. The plant is not poisonous to bees however. The honey would be extremely bitter so hopefully one would not like to eat it. I'm not sure how beekeepers can keep their bees from the plant. Next time I talk to a local beekeeper I'll see what they say.
