Can a homeowner plant a garden in soil that was treated with Altriset?
You should not plant a garden that will contain edible vegetation in the same soil that was treated with Altriset. Altriset persists in soil for at least 5 years and it is not labeled to be used in places where edible plants will be grown. If you really do want to plant a vegetable garden in an area that was treated with Altriset you will need to remove all of the soil and replace it with untreated soil. You should note though that if the soil is removed and it is in the termite treatment barrier zone you will be left with a hole in your termite barrier. If you just want to plant a flower garden you should not run into any issues.
